SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is in custody Monday after fighting with police who tried to calm him down after a fight with another man.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. at Euclid and Polk in City Heights. Witnesses say two men were arguing about a cell phone. The fight quickly escalated, with one of the men getting more and more agitated.

An officer arrived and tried to calm the situation, but the man started fighting with him.

In the end, it took at least nine officers to subdue the man.

"The guy was definitely on some type of drug because he was just irate, he was went berserk," witness Guillermo Vasquez said.

The man was taken to the hospital. Police haven't commented on his condition.
