Before he was arrested, Jeremiah Jackson advanced toward police officers Monday night, telling police to shoot him, police say.

Instead, he was arrested for third-degree domestic assault and obstructing a police officer.

Jackson, a 33-year-old Grand Island man, was arrested at about 7:50 p.m. at 2915 W. Louise.

Officers arrived at that location in reference to a possible domestic assault. Jahniera Wright, who had a visible injury to her left eye, told police that Jackson, her boyfriend, had punched her in the face, causing the injury to her eye.

While police were on the scene, Jackson approached officers with one hand in his pants and refused to take his hand out of his pants and get on the ground as instructed.

Wright was referred for second-degree domestic assault.

In Hall County Court Tuesday, Jackson was charged with third-degree domestic assault with prior offenses and obstructing a peace officer. His preliminary hearing is set for 10:30 a.m. Oct. 30.
