South Windsor Police have arrested a 27-year-old local man accused of tackling and punching a female police officer and head-butting a male officer last month.
The charges are in connection with a report of domestic violence at Michael Dillman’s Oakland Road home in December.
When officers responded to the house, Dillman ran into nearby woods, police said.
A canine team from Enfield was brought in to help with the search and Dillman was found in the woods, police said.
When officers tried to take him into custody, Dillman tackled an officer and began punching her, police said.
An Enfield officer then deployed his police dog and began to pull Dillman off the South Windsor officer, but Dillman head-butted the Enfield officer, causing a bloody nose, police said.
Dillman was subdued with a stun gun and was sent to a local hospital for treatment and mental health assessment.
On Saturday, Jan. 12, police arrested Dillman on a warrant charging him with two counts of assault on a police officer, interfering with an officer and disorderly conduct.
He was later released on $30,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear at Manchester Superior Court on Jan. 24.
