A Chico man was arrested after he reportedly resisted arrest and hit an officer in the face several times Thursday afternoon.

Around 12:45 p.m. Chico police were called to the Torres Shelter on Silver Dollar Way after a man attacked a person and then refused to leave.

When officers arrived, 45-year-old Rafael Cabrera refused to obey them and told them they would have to fight him. Cabrera was tasered three times before officers were able to take him into custody.

One officer suffered several broken blood vessels to his eye, but no other injuries were reported.

Cabrera was booked into the Butte County Jail.
