A 32-year-old man broke a correctional officer's leg early Thursday in a scuffle during book-in at the county jail, Lincoln police say.

Officer Erin Spilker said police had arrested Luis Corral on warrants after finding him trespassing at a vacant apartment in the 500 block of South 27th Street at about 4:30 a.m.

Spilker said at the jail while Corral was putting on jail clothes, a correctional officer saw him take a clear bag out of his pocket and put it in his mouth. When the officer tried to get him to spit it out, Corral refused and they ended up in a struggle on the floor, she said.

In the scuffle, the officer's leg was broken, sending him to a hospital.

She said Corral ultimately was booked on suspicion of assault on an officer, trespassing and possession of a controlled substance for a meth pipe found with residue in it at the apartment.
