LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A deputy with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office was sent to the hospital after arresting a man Saturday night.
Officials say Eric Guerin did not pull over for deputies near Garfield Avenue and 57th Street when they say they observed traffic violations.
Deputies started chasing the suspect and tracked him to a home on Crescent Drive in Loveland.
Investigators say Guerin was holding his 2-year-old child as deputies tried to arrest him while attempting to take the child away.
During the fight, officials say Guerin dropped the child, but the child was not hurt.
That’s when, according to officials, Guerin tried to take a deputy’s firearm, but was not successful.
Guerin’s father, Eric M. Guerin, then arrived at the home and allegedly obstructed the investigation resulting in his arrest.
The deputy is expected to be okay.
The younger Guerin faces a slew of charges including second degree assault.
