LUBBOCK, Texas -

Two people were arrested accused of assaulting a Brownfield police officer at a bar near 66th and Milwaukee.

David Reid and Steven Allen are charged with assault on a peace officer. Police were called to Little Woodrows Saturday night in reference to a disturbance.

Police say read starting fighting another patron at the bar and when the officer tried to break up the fight, Reid reportedly turned on the cop.

Reid was taken to the parking lot where police say he continued to resist. Police report that's when Allen approached the officer from behind and placed him in a "choke hold".

Reid told police he didn't know the victim was a cop because his "clothing and badge were not immediately recognizable".

Both Reid and Allen have since bonded out.
