EL PASO, Texas – Police in El Paso, Texas, said a handcuffed man bit a police officer after trying to run from a traffic stop.

Rogelio Fernando Guevara, 37, was pulled over on June 15 when police officers noticed his vehicle did not have a registration sticker. When officers reached the driver, they said Guevara appeared intoxicated and arrested him for DWI, according to KVIA.

Before the arrest was completed, Guevara, who was handcuffed, ran from the scene. A second officer ran after Guevara and tackled him to the ground. The pair struggled, and Guevara bit the officer.

The officer used a stun gun in an attempt to stop Guevara. Additional police officers arrived at the scene and were able to get the suspect in custody, according to KFOX-TV.

Guevara was later booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility and has been charged with assault on a public servant, resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated.
