COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

A San Antonio man was arrested in College Station early Sunday morning after police said he resisted arrest and assaulted an officer.

Police received a call about 2:21 a.m. in reference to a possible fight outside a Chevron gas station on University Drive.

Police report there were many people gathered outside because all of the bars in the area had just closed.

As officers got closer to the scene, someone pointed at a man and told police that man was somehow involved, Sgt. Kenneth Petereit said.

When officers approached the man, Petereit said he was drunk enough to be a danger to himself or to others. The officers tried to help the man find a safe ride home, but the man refused their help. 

When they tried to take him into custody for public intoxication, he resisted, Petereit said. 

"A Taser was deployed in an attempt to control him, but it was minimally effective. He was able to pull away and began fleeing on foot," he said.

An officer caught up with him, and that's when Petereit said the man started punching the officer in the face to try to get away.

Police deployed a second Taser and were able to gain control of him and arrest him.

Police identified the man as 33-year-old Navy Lemagoto Afe. 

He was charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, evading arrest, and assault on a public servant. He was also later charged with failure to identify and possession of a fictitious license or certificated. 

The officer police said Afe assaulted suffered minor injuries.
