Man held in alleged fight with Fresno officers

The officers found the man and a 16-year-old boy sitting in a SUV in the driveway of a home. Police said the man got out, warned officers he had a gun in his waistband and made motions as if to reach for it. The officers grabbed the man's arms and a struggle began.

Police said the man punched one officer in the face repeatedly before he was subdued as other officers arrived.

No gun was found. The man was was booked into Fresno County Jail on suspicion of felony battery on a police officer. The 16-year-old was cited on a charge of interfering with officers.
