SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A man is behind bars after he allegedly attacked Sacramento officers Friday afternoon.
Just after 4 p.m., officers responded to the area of Meadowview Road and Freeport Boulevard when a parking enforcement officer radioed for emergency assistance after being physically assaulted by a man walking in the middle of the road.
The parking enforcement officer was punched in the face through his open car window after he asked 27-year-old Drian Debbs to get out of the roadway and out of traffic.
A Sacramento police K9 officer was first to arrive. As the officer exited the patrol vehicle, Debbs charged while violently swinging his fists, hitting the police officer in the face.
The officer released the K9 on Debbs because of his violent behavior.
The officer sustained minor injuries to the jaw, and was treated and released from an area hospital. The parking enforcement officer also complained of pain, but did not require medical treatment at the hospital.
It is believed that the suspect was under the influence of narcotics during the assaults, which may have played a role in his violent actions, authorities say.
Debbs was booked into Sacramento County Jail after being treated at a local hospital for injuries to his lower body from the K9. He was charged with multiple assault charges on an officer, violation of probation and resisting arrest.
