A 46-year-old Monessen man was accused of fighting with city police, kicking one in the stomach, as he was taken into custody Tuesday when officers responded to a report of a disturbance inside an apartment building.

Kyle R. Ross was arraigned on charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, defiant trespass, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in connection with the incident that occurred about 5 p.m. at the apartment building on the 200 block of Oneida Street.

Officer William Dennison reported in court documents that officers discovered Ross after responding to a complaint of a man inside the apartment building who refused to leave.

“Ross took an aggressive stance and screamed at this officer,” Dennison said.

Dennison said Ross, who lives on Sixth Street, smelled of alcohol and refused to be taken into custody.

Police used a Taser in an attempt to subdue Ross, Dennison said.

Ross is accused of kicking Dennison in the stomach as he was placed in the police cruiser, according to the complaint.

Ross was arraigned before Senior District Judge James Falcon and ordered held in the Westmoreland County Prison after failing to post $3,500 bail.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
