A 21-year-old Canandaigua man is accused of assaulting a city police officer Sunday night.
It all started when an officer observed a small fire burning on the sidewalk area of Phoenix Street. It was determined that Klon Reese had set some clothing on fire, which was a violation of the open burning law. As officers attempted to take Reese into custody, he resisted and fought with them. One officer suffered minor injuries during the scuffle, which required medical treatment.
Reese is charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and littering.
