SCHENECTADY - A city man injured two Schenectady officers as they arrested him Wednesday in a domestic case, authorities said.

Both officers are expected to miss some time, but it was unclear for how long, a police spokesman said.

Larry Stubbs, 42, of State Street, now faces two counts of second-degree assault, felonies, along with misdemeanors.

He is accused of fighting with officers Jonathan Pietrafesa and Joseph Lima just after noon Wednesday at 947 State St. He refused to obey numerous orders from officers to put his hands behind his back "and then physically attacked officers," charging paperwork reads.

Pietrafesa suffered abrasions to his left eye, forehead, right temple, right hand and knees. He was treated and released from Ellis Hospital. Lima suffered injuries to his neck and right shoulder and scrapes to his elbow, documents read.

Lima's Taser holster also broke during the scuffle, leading to a misdemeanor criminal mischief count. 

Officers finally took Stubbs into custody and charged him on the underlying domestic allegations with misdemeanor criminal tampering. He is accused of intentionally deflating his girlfriend's car tires, documents read.

Stubbs was arraigned and ordered held.
