Sean A. Russell faces two felony charges after reportedly fighting and kicking Boise Police Department officers Monday afternoon, according to a BPD press release.
Russell, 31, was charged with two counts of felony assault or battery upon personnel and three misdemeanors: resisting or obstructing officers, petit theft and failure to appear.
BPD officers responded to a report of a man acting erratic near the 4700 block of Eagle Road Monday at about 1:30 p.m. When officers found Russell, he had items that were allegedly stolen from a store. The officers tried to take him into custody, but he reportedly fought back and kicked at least one officer in the leg. One officer used a Taser and then Russell was taken into custody.
Russell is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 24, according to court records. He remains in the Ada County Jail.
