Two Colorado Springs police officers are recovering from minor injuries after being attacked by a dog while trying to arrest a suspect during a fight at an apartment complex early Friday morning.

Officers were called to the 3300 block of E. Fountain Blvd for a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, the woman told police the man had left the apartment after the verbal argument. Officers said she allowed them inside, and they found the man hiding in a bathroom.

Once they found him, officers said he started fighting them and ran into the hallway of the building. The officers tackled him, one was hit in the face by the suspect and the other suffered bites on his leg and arm from two dogs that had been inside the apartment. The man was able to run away from the area.

The officers drove themselves to the hospital where they were treated for minor injuries. As they left the hospital, they were alerted that the man was back at the apartment. They went back and arrested him.

23-year-old Michael Darby is now facing several charges including assault on a peace officer, obstruction, and drug charges.

    Colorado is collecting so much money it may be required to send more than $200 million back to taxpayers over the next three years.  It's a surprising turn from this time a year ago, when lawmakers cleared out room under the state revenue cap to avoid budget cuts.
