An officer was kicked in the head while responding to a domestic disturbance Wednesday morning.

The incident happened around 1 a.m. at an apartment complex on Pirates Cove Road, near Tenaya Way and Westcliff Drive.

Upon arrival, police contacted a teenage male suspect in the parking lot who was screaming, jumping on top of a vehicle, not wearing any clothes and acting aggressive toward officers. 

The suspect was eventually taken into custody. While awaiting for medical to arrive to evaluate the suspect, he kicked one of the officers. 


Just got this viewer video of what I was reporting on this morning. Police say a naked teen kicked an officer in the head. You'll see more video from this story on later editions of 13 Action News.
