(WAUKEGAN) Two police officers were injured early Wednesday when they responded to a call of a couple fighting in north suburban Waukegan.

Two officers responded to a call of a couple fighting and throwing things at each other about 1:50 a.m., and found Brian Hall, 28, and Leporsha Doby, 29, arguing at their home in the 300 block of Franklin Street, according to a statement from Waukegan police.

Almost immediately, those officers requested “all available units” to respond and eventually 16 police officers responded to the scene, the statement said.

One officer suffered a large contusion to the head and another officer suffered a concussion, several lacerations to the face and an eye irritation, police said.
