LAS CRUCES - A Fort Bliss soldier is under arrest on suspicion of trying to disarm a Las Cruces police officer.
Nicholas Deon Robinson, 22, is charged with not only trying to disarm the cop, but resisting the officer and assault on an officer.
The charges stem from what police call a loud party early Sunday morning.
Police rushed to the 2100 block of Virginia Pine Way where partiers were said to be disrupting the neighborhood.
An officer says Robinson refused commands and swung a fist in an effort to strike the officer.
The soldier is then accused of trying to take the cop's weapon.
After a short struggle, the officer took Robinson into custody.
