COLLEGE STATION, TX — College Station Police say a man arrested on a felony warrant attacked an officer and attempted to run away before being captured.

College Station Police officers responded to an apartment in the 400 blk. of Anderson St., College Station on Feb. 8 to attempt to locate a man who was believed to be hiding in the apartment

The man, 23-year-old Keith Cornell Pullin, was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant.

Officers say they first met with the female resident who was the girlfriend of Pullin.

The female, identified as 28-year-old Arielle Brenna Shaver, closed the door on the officers initially, but came out later and said that Pullin was not in the apartment.

She allowed officers to search the apartment and the male was located hiding in the air conditioning return space.

It was determined that Shaver had assisted Pullin in hiding in the space, even securing the grate back over the space. Police say she did this knowing that he was wanted for a felony.

Shaver, a College Station resident, was arrested for Hindering Apprehension or Prosecution- 3rd Degree Felony.

Pullin was placed in handcuffs and into the back of a patrol vehicle, according to police.

He was soon able to remove his seatbelt, moved his hands to in front of his body, and began kicking the steel framed plexiglass window so hard that it was heavily damaged and bent.

When the patrol officer tried to get Pullin under control, the male attacked the officer, punching, kicking, and tackling him, before running away.

The officer was injured but gave chase, and was able to get the male back into custody after a short time.

The suspect continued to resist being transported even after leg restraints were placed on him by multiple officers.

The injured officer received treatment at the scene for a large abrasion.

Pullin, a College Station resident, was arrested for an outstanding warrant from Illinois for Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

He was additionally charged with: Assault on a Public Servant- 3rd Degree Felony, Escape Causing Bodily Injury- 2nd Degree Felony, Criminal Mischief- Class B Misdemeanor, Resisting Arrest, Search, or Transport Class A Misdemeanor.
