An Omaha police officer was injured early Sunday when he was hit by a bottle while breaking up a large disturbance near 25th and Taylor Streets.
The officer, whose name was not immediately released, suffered a facial fracture from the thrown bottle, according to Officer Michael Pecha, a police spokesman. Police were called to the area about a block south of Ames Avenue at 3 a.m., he said.
As officers attempted to disperse the crowd, an officer was struck in the face by the bottle. A 31-year-old man was booked into jail after officers said they witnessed him throwing bottles at other officers.
The man was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of an unregistered firearm, disorderly conduct and failure to disperse.
