A man was arrested Wednesday night after he allegedly threw a Molotov cocktail at police. Officers with the Corning Police Department investigated a loud noise coming from outside their station, according to a news release issued Thursday by CPD. An officer attempted to contact Cassidy Russ, 32, of Corning, who was walking away from the police department toward Solano Street.

Russ was fumbling with an item near the front of her waist as she walked away from her, ignoring the officers, according to the statement. Another officer on a patrol stopped in the 700 block of Fourth Street and reportedly gave Russ verbal commands.

An off-duty officer reportedly accosted Russ in the 1300 block of Solano Street. Russ resisted arrest by hiding his hands by his waist and backpack.

He continued to resist arrest during baton beatings and pain enforcement techniques.  The officers eventually took Russ into custody and handcuffed him under sustained resistance.
