A convicted felon was arrested Dec. 19 by the Nebraska City Police Department after yelling profanities at an officer.
Corby Newburn, 39, of Nebraska City was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and a felon in possession of a deadly weapon.
At about 2:15 a.m., a NCPD officer was patrolling an area near 2nd Avenue and 8th Street and heard a male yelling. According to an affidavit, the officer saw Newburn, who was wearing a black sweatshirt, walking south along 8th Street. The officer made contact with Newburn, who told the officer that he was walking to the store.
According to the affidavit, the officer smelled alcohol on Newburn's breath and observed that his eyes were bloodshot.
Two other individuals seen with Newburn told the officer they were looking for a couple of missing dogs.
The affidavit states that the two individuals walked away, and Newburn stood on the corner of 8th Avenue and Central and began yelling profanities at the officer, who was leaving the scene.
"(Newburn) was told to stop yelling, not to yell obscenities and stop being disorderly," the officer wrote in the affidavit.
Newburn continued.
The officer drove off and sat in his patrol vehicle at 801 3rd Corso.  Newburn then walked south on 8th Street past 3rd Corso. Newburn looked at the officer, yelled profanities and raised "his middle fingers" at the officer.
The officer then arrested Newburn for suspicion of disorderly conduct. While searching Newburn, the officer found a sheath containing an over three-and-a-half-inch-long blade underneath Newburn's coveralls.
Newburn was then also charged with suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon on his person and transported to the Otoe County Detention Center. While at the jail, a criminal history was conducted and it was discovered that Newburn was a convicted felon.
Newburn was booked into the jail for suspicion of disorderly conduct and a felon in possession of a deadly weapon, which is a Class 3 felony.     
Newburn could be facing a maximum of 20 years in prison, a $25,000 fine or both for the Class 3 felony charge.
