RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Rapid City police officer was attacked with a knife and suffered a cut to the hand after a fiery car chase. Authorities say he is recovering.

The incident happened early Thursday. The Rapid City Journal reports that officers tried to stop a car that was driving the wrong way when the driver fled. The car caught on fire after it was damaged while crossing a median.

Police say the car was engulfed in flames and the male driver, female passenger and a dog fled on foot. As the driver was approached, he allegedly cut one of the officers. Authorities used a stun gun on the driver and arrested him on multiple counts.

Police say the female was arrested on outstanding warrants. The dog was taken to an animal shelter.

Nebraska man gets 7 years for child porn possession

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln man accused of possessing and sharing child pornography has been imprisoned.

Prosecutors say 60-year-old Jeffrey Ehlers was given seven years behind bars at his sentencing Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Lincoln. He also is required to serve 12 years of supervised release after leaving custody and register as a sex offender.

Authorities say Ehlers came to their attention when a group home leader told Bellevue police that an underage girl was having an inappropriate relationship with a man. Investigators eventually gained access to Ehlers’ desktop and laptop computers and found more than 600 image files containing the porn.

There also was data that showed Ehlers had been sharing porn with other people on social media.
