CHICO, Calif. - Chico police said an officer is in the hospital Monday after sustaining significant injuries from what the department calls a violent assault. 

Chico police said officers were called to West 8th and Nord Avenues just before 7:00 Sunday night, where they found 21-year-old Aaron Duggar walking in the street, possibly drunk.

They said Duggar walked away between houses and hopped over fences, getting into fights with property owners, eventually threatening to kill one of them with a gun.

The gun, which was stolen, was found on the ground near where Duggar and the arresting officer fought.

The unidentified officer is in stable condition at Enloe Medical Center.

Duggar is in Butte County Jail facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a loaded firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, criminal threats, brandishing a firearm, assault on a police officer, and resisting arrest.

Chico police said the incident is one of several significant events during the weekend in which subjects violently resisted and/or fought with officers, but no significant injuries occurred to the suspects or police during these violent events.
