Amarillo, TX - An area man remains in jail following an attempted burglary in south Amarillo.

19 year-old Esias Zachary Orozco is charged with burglary of a habitation, assault on a public servant and resisting arrest.

Police say on a burglary call late last week, they found him in a back yard in the 5700 block of Coral Circle.

Officers say he resisted arrest and had to be pepper sprayed and handcuffed, but soon slipped out of those handcuffs and continued to fight with officers, biting one officer in the arm.
