A 31-year-old man who allegedly broke down his mother’s bedroom door was arrested in Salinas on Wednesday on suspicion of biting a police officer, a police commander said. The mother of Aaron Reyes, of Salinas, called police at about 9:37 a.m. Wednesday and said her son had become violent and broke down her bedroom door in the 700 block of St. Michael Way, police Cmdr. Michael Groves said. The woman ran to a neighbor’s house, where she called police, Groves said. Reyes walked outside his mother’s home to continue to argue with her and officers who arrived on the scene had to separate them, according to Groves.
Reyes’s mother, who was not injured, then asked that he be arrested for breaking down her door, Groves said. As officers tried to place Reyes in handcuffs, he pulled away and attempted to bite one of the officers, according to Groves. Reyes continued to struggle with officers on the way to a patrol car and just before he was placed inside, he succeeded in biting the finger of one of the officers, Groves said. Police arrested Reyes on suspicion of battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and vandalism, Groves said.
