According to the report, officers were called to a home off Fisk Road, in White Lake Mobile Home Park, at 11 p.m. for a reported assault.

When police arrived they found a 22-year-old White Lake man and a 23-year-old White Lake female.

The report states that the female told police the man had struck her during an altercation. Police conducted their investigation and attempted to arrest the man for assault.

The man, according to the report, started to resist arrest and fought with the arresting office. A second officer tried to help and, along with the first, was injured. The report states it took three officers to finally subdue the man.

One officer sustained an injury to his hand, and will have to be off for one week while it heals. The second officer had only minor injuries.

The man, Curtis R. Corven, was arraigned Aug. 21 on two felony counts of resisting and obstructing a police officer, one count of misdemeanor assault and one count of operating a vehicle with a suspended license.

Corven's bond was set at $25,000 cash and he remains at Oakland County Jail.
