The officers were responding to a "domestic related assault" in which Hales broke into an apartment where his grandmother lives and assaulted her, warrants said.

While two officers attempted to restrain him, the woman officer was choked and the other was assaulted.

For the woman officer, the warrant said he left "his hand print around her neck, and she was unable to breathe."

Additionally, he was said to have scratched another officer on the face and ear.

Fortunately, the overall injuries sustained by the officers were non-life-threatening.

Hales told the female officer that, when he gets out, he's "going to kill her because she deserves it," the warrant said.

Hales is set to appear in court Monday and he's currently being held under a $100,000 bond.
