ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Nine people have been arrested for assaulting two off-duty Orlando police officers who were working security for a club.
The arrests happened early Sunday after a group of woman tried to get back in the club without paying. Police say a group of men leaving the club added to the disturbance.
The Orlando Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/PYs1mF ) both officers were working the security detail in police uniform when they were punched in the face during a scuffle. One officer said he felt "tugs" on his gun holster and baton.
Four people are charged with battery on a law-enforcement officer. Five others are charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. One of them is also charged with depriving an officer of means to communicate for ripping the officer's radio from his belt.
