   A San Antonio Police Officer is hospitalized following an altercation with a suspect early today, Newsradio 1200 WOAI reports.

  Police say two officers noticed an individual 'acting suspiciously' near Hamilton and Tampico, on the city's west side, about 1AM Friday.

  When the officers attempted to question the man, he bolted, prompting a chase.

  One of the officers caught the suspect, but he wrestled with the officer, they both fell to the ground, and the officer dislocated his shoulder.

  The suspect was arrested.  The officer was taken to Metropolitan Methodist Hospital downtown for treatment.
