CINCINNATI -- Police arrested a man who they said attacked a woman and then fought with officers while he was being arrested. 

Larry Pierson, 39, kicked a door off its hinges in a Bahama Terrace home and then hit a woman in the face, police said in court records. 

As police were taking Pierson into custody, he kicked a sergeant in the legs and reached for an officer's gun, according to court records. 

Pierson is facing charges of aggravated burglary, assault and resisting arrest. 

He was being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center pending arraignment Tuesday morning.
