Serving up a little hash at the fights Saturday got two North Platte residents cited for possession of a controlled substance and free portraits on the jail roster. Kylee Knott, 31, and Christopher Greene, 27, both of North Platte, were taken to the jail and cited for possession of hashish. They were processed and released.
According to a Lincoln County Sheriff’s spokesperson, at a little before 9 p.m. June 8, two private security cops notified police officers at the Midwest Championship Fight 7 at the Wild West Arena that some people in the audience were hitting on a pipe.
The officers approached and saw Knott drop a pipe on the ground. Officers found probable cause to arrest both Knott and Greene for possession.
The Sheriff’s Office said that those attending Nebraskaland Days events should know that anyone caught being involved in disturbances or criminal activity at events will be banned from future events, placing them at risk being arrested for trespassing if they attend future events.
Also, recently in county court:
Teenager Lukas J. Camacho, 18, of North Platte was arraigned Monday on charges of inducing a substance to cause intoxication, disturbing the peace and failure to appear.
Camacho pled guilty to the inducing and disturbing the peace charges, and in exchange, the failure to appear charge was dropped.
He was sentenced to time served (2 days, 14 hours).
On Feb. 26, police were called to a North Platte residence on a report of a man standing outside by a car yelling and hitting himself on the head.
Officers found Camacho standing next to his car, obviously under the influence of something. On the front seat of Camacho’s car was an aerosol can of a product called “Ultra Duster.”
Camacho admitted to the police that he had inhaled from that can.
Maria Markus, 20, of North Platte, faced arraignment for possession of alprazalam, minor in possession of alcohol and misrepresenting age to obtain alcohol.
She said she would hire her own attorney and her bond was set at $5,000.
