Sheriff Dave Lucas tells News 9, both deputies responded to a call Tuesday afternoon in Lloydsville for a combative patient.
While attempting to restrain the man one deputy was bitten and the other suffered a shoulder injury.
Police have identified the suspect as 28-year old Ryan Puskarich of Lloydsville. Puskarich was also taken to OVMC, for a medical evaluation.
The sheriff’s office is still investigating and charges are forthcoming.
They believe Puskarich’s violent and uncontrollable behavior may be drug related.
