OKLAHOMA CITY — A man was arrested after he allegedly punched a police officer in the face Monday.

Officers responded to a disturbance call at the 5900 block of Republic Dr. about a man who, according to reports, was “going berserk and throwing everything around.”

Two officers approached the house and knocked on the door around 7:15 pm.

“You’re not coming in here!,” a man reportedly yelled from inside the house.

The officers walked around to the garage door, where police say they were allowed in.

As they walked inside, authorities say the allegedly aggressive man immediately threw his hands in the air and said “You better not touch me!”

Authorities say one officer tried to grab the man, later identified as 20-year-old Daniel Hebler.

That’s when Hebler allegedly punched the officer in the face, leaving the officer bloody.

Hebler retreated to a bedroom, where he climbed onto the top bunk.

Allegedly afraid of being kicked in the face, the other officer waited until the first policeman pulled his taser.

“OK, OK, OK,” Hebler said, as reports say the officers helped him back to the ground and cuffed him.

Daniel Hebler was booked at the Oklahoma County Jail.
