(COLUMBUS) - A Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department deputy was injured after he was kicked by a man Tuesday.

Deputies were called to the County Road 100 East just before 6 p.m. after a report of a suicide attempt.

The suspect began walking toward deputies and acting as if he had a gun behind his back.

Deputies worked to defuse the situation, says Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the sheriff's department.

As the man was being handcuffed, he kicked and injured Deputy Dane Duke, Jackson says.

Duke was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital where he was treated and released. Jackson says that Deputy Duke will be off work for an undetermined amount of time due to his injuries. The suicidal subject was admitted to the hospital.
