A man charged with trying to hit a Nebraska state trooper has accepted a plea deal.

The North Platte Telegraph reports that 25-year-old Aaron Suppes pleaded no contest Monday in Lincoln County District Court to attempted assault on an officer with a motor vehicle and first-offense driving under the influence.

A charge of possession of a stolen vehicle was dropped.

Suppes was arrested on March 10 and accused of trying to ram his car into trooper J.J. Connelly, who had pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 80.

The car struck the car Connelly had pulled over but missed the trooper.

Suppes will be sentenced March 13.
