A Northeast Nebraska State Patrol Trooper was honored recently because of injuries he received in the line of duty. Trooper Brian Detlefsen of Creighton received an Honorable Service Award for his actions during a December 18th incident near Brunswick. An individual was using a tractor to destroy property in rural Antelope County, and Detlefsen's patrol vehicle was rammed by the tractor at a high rate of speed. The trooper required medical treatment for a laceration to his head. In presenting the award to Detlefsen, Patrol Colonel David Sankey said his actions demonstrated bravery, courage and self-sacrifice in the face of danger and in the protection of others.
