Officer Injured While Arresting Man In Fullerton Sports Bar

FULLERTON (CBS) —  A police officer suffered minor to moderate injuries Sunday while arresting a man at a sports bar in Fullerton, police said.

The officer was injured while arresting a man suspected of burglarizing a home near Larry’s Pizza and Sports Parlor located at 926 W. Orangethorpe Ave., said Fullerton police Sgt. Andrew Goodrich.

“He (the officer) just bumped his head. He’s being checked out (now).

He’s going to be fine,” said Fullerton police Sgt. Tim Petropulos. “He went to the hospital just as a precautionary measure.”

The incident occurred around 12:20 p.m. when a resident called police to report a possible burglary in the area, said Sgt. Andrew Goodrich.

“He followed him to Larry’s Pizza and called police from there,” Goodrich said.

Police arrived at the location and — after a physical altercation — the suspect, identified as 49-year-old Mark Charboneaus, was taken into custody, Goodrich said.

Sgt. Andrew Goodrich said the department is not discussing the harm to the officer, but that he suffered “minor to moderate injuries.”

Charboneau, who also suffered minor injuries, was arrested and booked for being under the influence of drugs and assaulting a police officer.

Goodrich said there was no evidence to support burglary, and he could not confirm reports that the suspect was a homeless man.
