Deputies were called to an Aloha-area apartment complex on a report that Erik Rodriguez-Reyes was assaulting his pregnant girlfriend, the agency said in a news release. Rodriguez-Reyes and his father were later arrested. The girlfriend suffered minor injuries, reports the Oregonian.

Several people were "uncooperative" when deputies showed up, and "started a physical confrontation" with the responders, according to the sheriff's office. Rodriguez-Reyes bit two deputies during a fight, severing the tip of one of the deputies' index fingers, the agency said.

The injured deputy, who wasn't publicly identified, was taken to a hospital for treatment.

"He lost the tip of an index finger, has been released from the hospital, and is at home resting," the sheriff's office tweeted later Monday morning
