The man, 26, had apparently been drinking at his apartment (1080 W. 3300 South) when he started fighting with one tenant and threatened two others with a .30-caliber rifle, according to a South Salt Lake police report.When police arrived to break up the fight, the man locked himself in his apartment and began throwing things out the window. When the man stuck his head out the window an officer grabbed him and pulled him out.

The man then kicked an officer in the head while en route to jail.
