    A couple wanted for assaulting a police officer and breaking into a house were arrested by Tulsa Police Department's Fugitive Warrants Team this week.

    Police say back in May, they were called to an apartment because there were people inside who didn’t have permission to be there. Chad and Amelia Gleixner told police the apartment belonged to their parents and they were house sitting. Officers later verified with management and the parents that was not true.

    Police say as they were trying to put the couple under arrest, they became argumentative and angry with the officer.

    As the officer was putting Chad into handcuffs, court documents say Amelia got up and tried getting in her truck. The officer tried to stop her, and she punched him, knocking his glasses off his face. While the officer struggled to get her into handcuffs, Chad stepped in, bumping and kicking the officer.

    Assisting officers arrived soon after and helped get the couple into custody.

    The couple has been wanted for these crimes since November, and were finally arrested this week.

    They are charged with assaulting a police officer, obstructing an officer, breaking and entering and resisting an officer.
