A Turlock man was placed under arrest after injuring two peace officers with a handcuff.

Jenaro Rios, 27, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and resisting a peace officer with violence.

The incident began around 1 p.m. Nov. 11 in the 900 block of W. Zeering Road when the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a domestic disturbance. An officer from the California State University, Stanislaus Police Department and a deputy from the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department also responded to the scene.

According to the police report Rios was intoxicated and refused to comply with orders when the officers went to check him for weapons. Rios was repeatedly putting his hands down when asked to raise them and pulled away when an officer attempted to handcuff him, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Steve Rodrigues.

A struggle ensued between Rios and the officers with all of them on the ground. At one point an officer was able to get one handcuff snapped on Rios’ wrist, but then he pulled away and started using it as a weapon, Rodrigues said.

One officer was hit on the head with the handcuff and another was hit on the lip.

The officers were able to get Rios restrained and took him into custody. He was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail.
