A disturbance call for police turned into a melee last night at Whitney Young Manor.
Colorado Springs Police responded to a possible disturbance shortly after 10 p.m. They were hearing reports that a woman was not breathing.
When they arrived, they found a man standing over an unconscious woman, with fingers in her mouth. Police asked him to back away, when he became aggressive, saying he was going to kill them. When police were detaining the man, the female got up. She hit an officer in the ribs, and was going for the head when the second officer subdued her.
During that, neighbors started coming out of their homes and threatening the police. One female threatened to kill them. Another female then tried to punch an officer in the head before she was subdued.
One woman was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Four adults were arrested after the scene was controlled. Three were charged with felonies, and one was charged with a misdemeanor.
