AURORA, Neb. -- A St. Paul man accused of threatening a former girlfriend was arrested after he was found in a field in central Nebraska.

According to Nebraska State Patrol spokesperson Cody Thomas, NSP troopers and the Hamilton County Sheriff's office detained the man after an investigation into the reported threats.

At approximately 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, NSP received information that 43-year-old Robert Jaeger posed an imminent threat to a former girlfriend. NSP was able to make contact with the former girlfriend and move her to a safe location, Thomas said.

At approximately 7:00 p.m., troopers and deputies located the subject in a field south of the Interstate 80 interchange at Aurora. Jaeger was reportedly in possession of multiple firearms.

As Jaeger attempted to leave the area in his pickup, a trooper performed a tactical vehicle intervention to bring the pickup to a stop, Thomas said. Jaeger was then taken into custody without further incident. Troopers reportedly located multiple firearms, as well as methamphetamine and controlled substance pills.

Jaeger was arrested for terroristic threats, violating a protection order, possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a firearm during a drug violation. He was lodged in Hamilton County Jail.
