County police, called to quell a noisy party in Arnold on Sunday, arrested a Virginia man on drug and assault charges, authorities said yesterday.

Officers Daniel A. Sereboff and Michael A. Krok went to the 1200 block of Summerwood Court in Arnold shortly after 1 a.m. because neighbors complained that a party was out of control and people were fighting, police said.

When the officers arrived, they found about 15 people trying to restrain two men who were fighting. Police broke up the fight and began interviewing witnesses when a man walked out of the house and began cursing loudly, police said.

As the officers tried to restrain him, another man charged at them, waving his fists and cursing loudly, police said. The man took a cigarette from his mouth and threw it at Officer Sereboff, burning him on the left side of his face, police said.

Police used pepper spray on the man, and he ran away with the officers in pursuit. During the chase, the man stopped, turned toward Officer Krok and raised his fist, police said. The officer used pepper spray a second time, police said.

Police said they finally arrested him, searched him and found $460 worth of what tested positive for LSD.
