BEATRICE – Gage County law officers say a 46-year-old Wymore man has been arrested on warrant for a felony offense, strangulation and a misdemeanor assault.
A Nebraska parole officer contacted Southeast Communications on Wednesday, saying the warrant had been issued for Shawn Fralin. A Gage County Sheriff’s investigator went to the area of 16th and Jefferson and awaited a marked patrol unit.
Authorities say within minutes, Fralin entered a parked vehicle in a driveway and drove away northbound onto Monroe Street, then north on Sixth. A Beatrice Police officer conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle north of Beatrice Community Hospital, on U.S. Highway 77 near West Hickory Road. Sheriff’s deputies arrived, assisting in the arrest of Fralin on the warrant.
Sheriff’s officials say Fralin is a registered sex offender and is required to be on lifetime registration.
