Around 8:30 p.m. Saturday night, 12/30, multiple Colorado Springs Police Officers were dispatched to 2432 W. Colorado Avenue in response to a suspect 'menacing' people with a gun.
Upon arriving at the location, the suspect was located and taken into custody. Police said a realistic looking BB gun was found on the suspect. Once the suspect was transported to the Gold Hills Division, police said he began to fight with officers in the holding cell area.
During the scuffle, one officer was kicked in the head and suffered minor injuries. According to police, he now faces second degree assault on a peace officer charges, in addition to felony menacing charges.
The suspect was identified by police as 23-year old Pauly Vigil.
Fort Carson is the lead agency fighting the fire with crews from all across southern Colorado assisting. Fort Carson said the fire started on a range where aviation and infantry troops were training Friday before noon and the fire quickly spread in high winds
Fort Carson Garrison Commander Ron Fitch said the Army would evaluate whether it would continue live fire training on Saturday after the Carson Midway Fire burned more than 2,100 acres Friday.
Multiple agencies are working to put out the remaining 20 percent of the Carson Midway fire that destroyed three homes.
Authorities confirmed that multiple structures were lost, and people have not been allowed to return to their homes. Evacuee Michael Kose described it as a hectic and terrifying afternoon.
