Arrested man allegedly takes aggressive behavior all the way to Colorado Springs emergency room

A man's alleged violent outbursts and criminal trespass landed him in jail Monday, but Colorado Springs police said he gave them plenty of trouble first.

Victor Miguel Rodriguez, 27, was arrested on suspicion of obstructing a peace officer, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, then booked into the El Paso County jail on a $500 bond, court records show.

Colorado Springs police reportedly found Rodriguez shortly before 7 p.m. hiding in a home's backyard on the 1100 block of Nolte Drive West, after a neighbor reported he had seen a man with a crow bar trying to break into a house.

Rodriguez initially surrendered to police, but then allegedly took off running when officers tried to apprehend him, jumping two six-foot fences as police pursued him.

When he was taken into custody, Rodriguez allegedly banged his head on the police cruiser's window repeatedly and continued to act aggressively at a local hospital's emergency room, police said.

Officers discovered Rodriguez was wanted on a domestic violence charge and their investigation concluded he had not tried to break into the home, but only entered the backyard illegally.
