Police responded to a car's "OnStar" activation near 6th and Center Streets on Sunday to find the suspect in the driver's seat.

"After quickly determining the suspect was impaired and in possession of drug paraphernalia, officers attempted to take the suspect into custody," stated Mesa Police Sgt. Tony Landato.

That's when the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Anthony Mascarenas, began to fight back by punching, kicking and biting the officers.

Officers took the suspect to the ground and were able to secure him in handcuffs, according to Landato.

One officer sustained a bite wound on the finger.

Mascarenas was arrested for aggravated assault, DUI and drug violations.
