— Two Fayetteville police officers were injured Monday while trying to arrest a domestic violence suspect at the Ponderosa Shopping Center.

Both officers were taken to the hospital to be checked out. They are expected to be OK.

Mayo was arrested and charged with domestic violence, misdemeanor larceny and obstructing justice.
