Wednesday afternoon, Lincoln Police responded to reports of a domestic disturbance near south 9th and Peach streets.

During their investigation, it was determined that 26-year-old Guillermo Castillo Jr. needed to be arrested for domestic assault. While attempting to take Castillo into custody, Castillo yelled at officers, but eventually willingly put his hands behind his back. Once officers were loading him into a police cruiser, Castillo pushed his body backards into officers and bit one officer on the hand.

The officer was treated at a local hospital for minor lacerations and is expected to recover.

Castillo was arrested for Assault on a Police Officer, Domestic Assault, Resisting Arrest, and Failure to Comply.
