Police said when they arrived at the 2600 block of Ninth around 9:30 p.m., there was yelling and screaming upstairs, and they found Reyes and a woman yelling at each other, and Reyes' breath smelled of alcohol.

The woman said she wanted him to leave, but he was too drunk to walk or drive. As officers talked with her, they said Reyes balled up his fist and charged at the woman.

While he was thrashing, an officer yelled that Reyes was trying to bite him in the arm, and another officer pulled Reyes' head away.

Kevin Reyes, 18, was also arrested at the disturbance. Officers said they are familiar with Kevin Reyes from past calls and outstanding warrants.
