TEMPE, Ariz. — A man with multiple arrest warrants is in custody after a scuffle on a bus with a Tempe police officer.

Police say 23-year-old Jordan Lemons is facing charges including aggravated assault, felony threats and possibly burglary.

On Tuesday afternoon, police were looking for a possible burglary suspect who reportedly boarded a bus in Tempe.

An officer spotted Lemons and pulled him off a bus before Lemons allegedly assaulted the policeman by punching him several times in the head.

The officer defended himself before deploying a stun gun on Lemons and arresting him.

It’s unclear if Lemons has a lawyer yet.
