Officers hurt in separate fights with same suspect

Posted: Updated:

Two officers who got into fights with the same suspect went to the hospital with minor injuries.

It happened at about 8:30 p.m. Monday on Pictureline Drive, northwest of Dallas Executive Airport. Officers were responding to a suspicious person call.

Police said the suspect seemed incoherent and ignored their commands. He charged at an officer and hit him in the neck, causing him to accidentally discharge his weapon. The suspect then ran off.

Another fight occurred when other officers found the suspect nearby. One officer injured his hand during the struggle to get him into custody.

The man was arrested and charges are pending.

His name has not yet been released.
