STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma police are crediting two good Samaritans with protecting a police officer who authorities say was attacked by a suspect.

Stillwater police say a motorcycle officer was called out Tuesday to a report of a shirtless, painted man acting unusual. The officer says the 20-year-old suspect was waving his arms around and tried to push him off of his patrol bike.

Police say the officer unsuccessfully tried to subdue the suspect with a stun gun and that a fight broke out between the men. They say two drivers stopped and helped control the suspect so that he could be handcuffed.

The suspect faces charges of assault and battery of a police officer and public intoxication.
