(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Around 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning, police responded to the 1000 block of East Center Street.

People said they could hear a female screaming "stop it".

Police found the house where the screaming was coming from, knocked on the door, and asked the men who answered if the female occupants of the house could come to the door, so they could make sure they were ok. 

One of the males apparently didn’t like the request, and punched the officer in the face. He was then tased, and arrested for 4th degree assault, and obstructing justice.

A second man was also arrested for obstructing justice.
