COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) A belligerent suspect was taken into custody kicking and spitting, according to Springs police.

Officers responded to a neighborhood near Murray and Airport Monday night to investigate a family disturbance. They found the suspect sitting in the back of a car.

Police say that when the suspect was ordered to get out of the vehicle, he refused, so an officer tried to pull him out. The suspect allegedly punched the officer in the arm. Police say they tased him, but that didn't subdue him: as he was removed from the car he allegedly kicked another officer and spat at the others standing by.

The suspect, identified as Gordon Salazar, was eventually arrested. According to jail records, he remains at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center Tuesday on a $10,000 bond.
