FAIRFIELD — Police officers swarmed Lee Bell Park on Tuesday afternoon after one of their own was attacked by an allegedly intoxicated man at the park.

Officers tried to arrest the man at approximately 4:20 p.m., In response, the man jumped up swinging, said Lt. Greg Hurlbut.

The man allegedly hit the officer a couple of times, Hurlbut said before the officer’s partner deployed a K-9 unit.

Close to two dozen officers swarmed the park and they overpowered the man, who Hurlbut described as a man in his late 20s, and dragged him off in handcuffs.

Hurlbut said the suspect and the officer were both taken to NorthBay Medical Center to be treated for their injuries.

Police also arrested a woman for allegedly being drunk in public, Hurlbut said.

The man’s arrest was part of increased enforcement efforts to reduce problems at Lee Bell and other city parks, Hurlbut said. The city recently removed benches and picnic tables from the park to discourage loitering.

    Were you there? Maybe you can show up and take on the suspect one-on-one? Cracks me up how people have absolutely no clue what they're talking about yet have all the solutions. Try fighting off a neth-head. You are totally clueless. Maybe you should sit down and shut up!

    Yes....amusing how someone sitting around in their yellow stained underwear in a room full of beer bottles and empty pizza boxes can profess how the police should do their job. I suspect if the OP was on the ground with some crazed drug addict trying to kill him he would be happy with the number of additional officers that arrived to help.

    Paper says he was intoxicated (drunk) not "high".... 2 dozen is overkill.

    If they would have used a taser and it worked he would have been ranting police brutality. Try taking on an intoxicated person that does not want to go to jail, maybe Sir you are under arrest would have worked, right?

    Your state sure does have a lot of problems like this. Perhaps you should stop feeding and coddling feral animals for starts.
