The Olympian reported that the two officers were responding to calls of a man throwing furniture in his yard on Wednesday. After no one responded at the residence, the officers entered the home to check.
But the man blocked the door to his bedroom. Officers unsuccessfully deployed a Taser after the man later ran down a hallway in an attempt to flee.
The suspect ran into one officer, pushing her down on the ground as he held onto her legs. She suffered a bruised face and a minor concussion. The man kicked the other officer and bit his right arm as the officer tried to handcuff him.
The man was arrested and booked into the Thurston County Jail on suspicion of two counts of third-degree assault of a police officer.
