WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Waco police said one officer has two fractured wrists after a scuffle with a known white supremacist gang member shortly after midnight.

Police said the officer spotted Joe Anderson at 11th and Clay Ave.

Police added that Anderson is a known sex offender, drug user, felon, member of white supremacist gang and wanted for failing to pay child support.

As the officer stopped and attempted to arrest Anderson, Anderson broke free and attempted to flee.

Once the officer caught up with Anderson, Anderson began to fight the officer. This is when the officer fractured his wrists.

Even with fractured wrists, the officer was able to handcuff the suspect and take him under control with the help of a back-up officer.

Once Anderson was arrested, he was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

He was charged with failure to pay child support warrant, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, evading arrest and assault on a public servant.

The Waco officer was transported to the hospital where he was treated for his fractured wrists.  

"We are extremely proud of our officer who had the ability and intestinal fortitude, to be able to fight through the pain of having both wrists broken," Sgt, Patrick Swanton. "Ultimately taking  into custody a violent and dangerous individual that was a significant risk to our community and its citizens."
