A Racine Police officer was injured while trying to apprehend a suspect Wednesday, Dec. 22, who was intoxicated and resisting arrest.

Police were called to the 800 block of Hagerer Street by a woman whose fiance, Brian Scott Hort, 42, of Racine, broke a kitchen window and refused to leave, according to a criminal complaint.

The first officer that tried to apprehend the suspect sustained fractures to his left ankle requiring of surgery.

Officers tried multiple times to physically restrain Hort, but he continued resisting and running away. The complaint says the officers used their tasers on Hort twice, finally incapacitating him with the second deployment.

Hort’s fiance told police the couple were drinking that night, and Hort continued to do so after she went to bed. It was during an argumentative phone conversation with his boss that Hort broke the kitchen window in anger, according to the complaint.

Hort was charged with disorderly conduct including domestic abuse assessments as a repeat offender, as well as resisting an officer causing substantial bodily harm to the officer.
