The Lincoln man accused of trying to lure Lincoln police officers into high-speed chases around the city and threatening to shoot up the courthouse early Tuesday now faces three charges in Omaha.

Douglas County prosecutors charged Duane M. Jordan with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and possession of Adderall without a prescription.

The drug is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Lincoln Police Officer Angela Sands said Omaha police arrested Jordan on Tuesday after he allegedly pushed an employee at an Omaha bike shop. When he left, a witness followed and told police where to find him.

When Omaha police took him to jail, they learned about the arrest warrant out of Lincoln for terroristic threats, Sands said.

Prosecutors in Lincoln charged him with the felony Tuesday for allegedly telling a Walmart clerk early that morning that he needed a gun to "shoot up the courthouse," then walking out of the store with three boxes of ammunition without paying.

Lancaster County sheriff’s deputies, in charge of security at the Hall of Justice, stood guard around the building Tuesday as a result of the threat.
