Police in Colorado say they arrested a 28-year-old man accused of passing out in a McDonald's play area and telling his two children to bite the officers who were trying to arrest him.

Colorado Springs police say officers had to use a Taser on Joshua Alger to subdue him Wednesday after he allegedly passed out drunk at the fast-food restaurant.

Police say Alger refused officers' orders and at one point told his children to "bite the officers' faces off."

Police say Alger has a previous arrest warrant for failing to appear in court on a charge of obstructing a police officer. He now also faces charges of second-degree assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and marijuana possession.
