REDDING, Calif. – Police officers arrested a Redding man who was found tearing off the interior of bedroom doors of a residence and later assaulted a police officer, thanks to the help of K-9 Hank, according to the police.

Around 1:30 a.m. Monday, May 4, police said they were notified of an intoxicated man, identified as 27-year-old Marcial Lawson, tearing off bedroom doors of a home, while armed with a shotgun.

Officers then learned that Lawson left the home in a nearby car, while still armed with a shotgun. Lawson was found by officers in the parking lot of an apartment complex on the 3700 block of Churn Creek Road.

He displayed an erratic and belligerent demeanor and threw a glass bottle at officers before running into a nearby residence. Officers gave several commands for Lawson to come out, which then led to a brief stand-off, according to the police.

Redding Police Department K-9 Hank assisted in taking Lawson into custody. A “sawed-off” shotgun was located by officers inside Lawson’s car.

Lawson received medical treatment for his injuries and then was booked into the Shasta County Jail for assaulting a police officer, obstructing/resisting arrest, possession of a short-barreled shotgun and a probation violation.
