ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A man is facing charges after Rochester Police say he kicked officers multiple times on Tuesday morning and had a loaded shotgun in his car nearby.

Kristian Baez, 28, was charged with criminal mischief, prohibited use of a weapon, attempted assault, and resisting arrest. Police arrested him after they were investigating shots fired into an unoccupied car on Ridgeway Avenue just after 1 a.m.

RPD identified Baez as the person who fired the shots from his own car. They say he drove off to nearby Knickerbocker Avenue where police found him as he was trying to enter his car. RPD says that’s when the man kicked officers but he was eventually detained, taken to Strong Hospital, and then taken to Monroe County Jail.

None of the officers were injured.
