A Laguna Heights man is behind bars after he assaulted two Cameron County deputy constables and attempted to take the gun away from a third one, authorities said.
The incident happened at about 1 a.m. January 7. Deputy constables responded to a call about a suspicious looking man walking around Michigan and Madison avenues.
Once they got there, the deputies tried to arrest 31 year old Juan Roberto Garza Jr. of Laguna Heights.
Garza, who according to the deputies was under the influence of what they suspect was crack cocaine, attacked the officers as they tried to arrest him.
