A Woodland man was arrested after brawling with officers who were responding to a domestic disturbance Friday night, according to the Woodland Police Department.

The incident began with officers being called to the scene of a domestic disturbance at 33 W. Elliot St. at 10:49 p.m. Friday. The suspect, 57-year-old Howard Wilbanks, allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and was suspected to also have brandished a knife.

The responding officers found Wilbanks uncooperative, according to Sgt. Steve Sexton. Wilbanks began to fight the officers upon their attempt to arrest him, Sexton reported, and punched one of the officers.

An officer at the scene was part of the K9 unit, and released his service dog from the patrol car outside the apartment. With the assistance of the canine, Sexton said, the officers were able to apprehend Wilbanks.

More officers were dispatched to assist the arrest. Meanwhile, the injured police were taken to Sutter Davis Hospital, but none sustained serious injuries. The officers and the dog have returned to duty, Sexton said.

Wilbanks also incurred non-life-threatening injuries, for which he was treated at Woodland Memorial Hospital. Officers later booked Wilbanks into Yolo County Jail.

He faces felony charges for spousal battery, vandalism, resisting an executive officer in performance of his duty, battery on a peace officer causing injury, resisting arrest causing injury to an officer and parole violation.
