SACRAMENTO - A man Sacramento police described as violent and unstable was arrested after a long struggle with officers Sunday afternoon.
Calls of a possibly violent man on a rooftop were received by Sacramento police just after 4 p.m., according to Sacramento police officer Michele Gigante.
When police arrived on the 2200 block of University Avenue, the man had come down from the roof but was uncooperative.
Gigante said the man started to fight with officers when they tried to take him into custody. They tazed the man several times but it didn't slow him down.
After a long struggle, a K9 officer was used to subdue the man and he was taken into custody.
Gigante said a police officer was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure for an injury sustained during the melee.
