what are the details
Officials said they heard loud knocking outside the Third Street police department just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and saw Cassidy Russ walking toward Solano Street, the station said.
Police say Russ fumbled with an object near his waistband while walking away and ignoring officers, KRCR reported — and then lit a Molotov cocktail, threw it at an officer and ran west on Solano Street .
The Molotov cocktail missed officers and exploded near a parked vehicle, police said said in a press release.
Officers chased Russ on foot and in a squad car, the station said, before an off-duty officer finally grabbed him.
Police said Russ resisted arrest by hiding his hands in his waistband and backpack, KRCR reported.
Officers then used batons and “pain compliance techniques” as he continued to resist arrest, police said, adding that officers were eventually able to handcuff him.
Police said Russ had an active warrant for an earlier incident in late July, when he threw a Molotov cocktail near a staging area for marked squad cars, the station said.
Russ was booked into the Tehama County Jail on multiple charges, including attempted murder, possession of an explosive device, arson, battery against a peace officer and resisting arrest, KRCR reported.
He is being held without bail and is due to appear in court on December 6. Fox News reports.
Corning is about three hours northeast of San Francisco.
