MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man is behind bars after fighting with officers and hitting one, sending her to the hospital.

Christopher Bishop had numerous felony and misdemeanor warrants to his name when officers went to arrest him Thursday night. As they were trying to take him into the custody, the 34-year-old began fighting with them, forcing them to call for backup.

During the struggle, Bishop reportedly hit a female officer. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

The officer is expected to be okay.
