SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Elone Brooks III, 45, has been arrested and charged on several counts after attempting to be booked into the Cochise County Jail.

Corporal Scott Borgstadt with Sierra Vista police tells KGUN9 that Brooks attempted to escape from officers while being booked into the Cochise County Jail on shoplifting charges on Wednesday, August 14.

During the escape attempt, Brooks fought with officers, punching the arresting officer from the Sierra Vista Police Department in the face and causing a bloody nose, said Borgstadt.

Brooks also attempted to bite a Cochise County detention officer when officers intervened.  He was unable to escape because of security provisions at the facility and officers’ quick actions.
 
Brooks was subdued and charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, three counts of attempted aggravated assault on a detention officer and escape.
