A Tulsa Police officer was attacked by a driver and two other people after he stopped a car for a traffic violation Wednesday evening.

The incident occurred in the 1600 block of North Columbia just before 6 p.m.

After the car pulled into a driveway, the police officer asked for 21-year-old Dustin Thompson's ID. Police said three other people, Raymond Cobb, 31, Amber Thompson, 19, and a 17-year-old male juvenile came out of a nearby home and began yelling obscenities at the officer.

Amber Thompson was booked on a complaint of obstruction. The juvenile was also arrested on an assault complaint.
