DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A Dubuque man faces a number of charges after he allegedly assaulted one man, then reached for an officer's gun while they were trying to arrest him.

24-year-old Andrew Hogan faces six charges, including second-degree attempted burglary, interference with official acts inflicting bodily injury and disarming a peace officer.

According to court documents, police were called to a house on Rhomberg Ave. around 9 p.m. on Monday after Hogan allegedly broke a window to gain entry into a house and punched the man living there in the face and back of the head.

Hogan fled, and was found not far away in the 1000 block of Lincoln Ave.  According to court documents, officers on the scene said Hogan had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, and had watery, red, bloodshot eyes.

When police tried to arrest them, Hogan allegedly resisted, and court documents say Hogan then reached for one of the officer's gun handles.

Documents show police were able to get Hogan under control and in handcuffs, but that he allegedly tried to resist again at the squad car, "pushing off the vehicle and trying to pull away."

The officer involved sustained minor injuries to his left arm.

In all, Hogan faces charges of interference with official acts, interference with official acts inflicting bodily injury, disarming a peace officer, second-degree attempted burglary, assault causing bodily injury and public intoxication.
