Kansas cops say an officer was not injured when thrown through a wall during a fight on Friday.

The Newton Police Department said in a news release that officers went to a house in the 100 block of South Main in Newton to serve an arrest warrant, and they smelled the odor of drugs while there.

“Upon entering the house a fight ensued, and an officer was thrown through a wall,” police said. The officer was not injured.

Three people were arrested on warrants and criminal charges related to the fight, police said. The department is applying a search warrant to search the home.

“There were multiple people in the residence at the time including men, women and children,” police said. “Everyone is safe and the situation is still being investigated.”
