Man arrested after fight with off-duty officer

A man is under arrest after getting into a fight with an off duty officer.

29-year old Francisco Lopez Penaloza is facing assault and several other charges.
He was arrested outside an apartment complex on Cross Keys Drive Saturday afternoon.

Police say he was drunk and exposing himself, when an off-duty corrections officer asked him to stop.
That's when the officer says Lopez attacked him. Officers say Lopez continued to fight even when other police units arrived on the scene.

Lopez is being held in the Fayette County Detention Center.
