ODESSA - A man is behind bars after assaulting a couple of officers.

26-year-old Harold Valdez is facing numerous charges including assault on a security officer, resisting arrest and public intoxication.

Odessa police were called out to Hooters just after midnight Tuesday.

That's where they found Valdez who appeared to be drunk and fighting with security guards.

They learned he had shoved a security guard and even spit saliva and blood at them while trying to detain him.

Officers eventually got him in a patrol car and took him to jail.

However, when they got him out of the vehicle, Valdez kicked an officer in the stomach and continued to argue and spit at officers.
