Several Police officers were injured after a man attacked them following an altercation. The incident took place at the South Loop, Chicago, on Saturday (May 9).

The accused, identified as 57-year-old Nathan Arrington, was arrested after he got into a physical altercation with seven police officers.

The officers responded to a call about a man causing a disturbance at a storage center in South Wabash on Saturday morning. Assistant State’s Attorney Carolyn Nevin stated that the man was reportedly trespassing into the property and making threats.

According to the police, Arrington refused to leave the property despite being asked to do so by the manager. Police said the 57-year-old had "threatened to harm him after stating his displeasure with their company policy.”

When officers arrived, the man refused to leave the property and asked if he could change his clothes inside the storage unit. However, when they tried to escort him out of the property, he again asked if he could change his clothes, leading to a physical altercation, during which, seven officers were injured.

According to Attorney Carolyn Nevin, the man re-entered the storage unit and attempted to close the door on the officers, as they tried to hold it open. They managed to handcuff him, after which, he “flailed his body in a violent manner”.

Following the incident, Arrington was taken into custody.

Meanwhile, six officers sustained minor injuries. They were treated at the scene. However, one of the officers had suffered a separated shoulder and knee injury and was transported to Northwestern Hospital. Police said his condition was stable.

Arrington was charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery to a police officer, one felony count of resisting or obstructing an officer, along with misdemeanor charges for simple assault and criminal trespassing.

He appeared in a court Sunday and was held in lieu of a $5,000 bond. No further information regarding the incident was available at the time.

In a similar incident, one police officer was fatally shot in the neck with a high-powered rifle, and another was severely injured after being shot in the leg while responding to a home invasion on the west side of Detroit in November. The suspect, who was not identified, entered the house looking for his girlfriend and opened fire at the officers while they were climbing up the stairs. According to police, the man had a criminal history including weapons charges.
