A Lubbock man is behind bars after attacking two off-duty police officers at UMC.

Around 10:40 p.m. Tuesday, two off-duty Lubbock Police Department officers working at UMC went to check on 26-year-old Ren Allen after he was brought to the emergency room by a family member for ingesting alcohol and other unknown substances.

When officers made contact with Allen, he attacked them. After a brief struggle, Allen was brought under control.

All three involved were treated for minor scratches.

Allen was taken to the Lubbock County Detention Center and charged with two counts of assault on a public servant.
