Three suspected house burglars, including one who fought with police during their arrest are behind bars. The trio was arrested while walking on McDowell Road near Woodside Drive just before noon.
Police say 21 year-old John Peterson was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and assaulting a police officer, after he struggled during his arrest. 22 year-old Antonio Sago was also arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon. 24 year-old Alderiso Davis was also jailed on possession of marijuana charges.
The precinct one police officer who chased the men down suffered minor lacerations to his hand and arm.
Police say a fourth man, Michael Black fled from the scene, but was arrested a short time later.
This wasn't the first time black fled from police. In 2006 WLBT cameras were there when he ran from a house surrounded by a S.W.A.T. team.
His case became big news after the arresting officers were accused of police brutality, when they were seen on Skycopter 3 video, punching black as they led him to the squad car.
Black was only questioned and released after Wednesday's incident.
