A Tolleson man allegedly used bull horns to attack family members and a deputy.

Court records show that on October 10, a man in Tolleson grabbed a pair of 3-foot bull horns, attacked family members and later charged at a deputy with the horns. 

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office reports that they were called to a home near Avondale Boulevard and Southern Avenue, where 39-year-old Cesar Arturo Sandoval, was allegedly swinging a 3-foot bull horn at family members. 

The deputy ordered Sandoval to drop the weapon, but he refused. Instead, he reportedly charged at the deputy with the bull horns. The deputy pulled his gun and backed away from Sandoval. A family member was able to get in between the two and take the horns away from Sandoval and assist the deputy in arresting him.

Sandoval is facing multiple counts of aggravated assault.
