WACO - Police have arrested a 22-year-old man accused of punching an officer in the face as the officers tried to break up a fight outside a Waco bar early Sunday morning.

John Alex Lopez faces a charge of assault of a public servant, and resisting arrest. He is being held on a total of $100,000 for both charges.

About 2 a.m. Sunday morning, in the 500 block of Austin Ave., Waco police responded to a call from a security guard about a fight outside the Ice House Bar. Officers tried to break up the fight, but one man, who police identified as Lopez, turned on an officer and hit him in the face, injuring the officer's face and jaw.

As the police tried to take the man into custody, he fought for several minutes, before they were able to cuff him and put him in the patrol car.
