Lexington police officer recovering

A Lexington police officer is recovering Monday night, after being injured in an incident with a suspect.

The altercation happened at the BP Gas Station, on Oxford Circle and Versailles Road.

That's where police tell us an officer had a suspect in handcuffs, who had been arrested on traffic warrants.

But, that's when investigators say the suspect head-butted the officer.

A back-up officer took the suspect into custody, and the injured officer is now at the hospital, undergoing tests.
