ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI)– A man who refused to pick up a beer can he threw down in an alley behind Second Street opted instead to throw down with a St. Charles officer, according to a police report.

He ended up kicking out a window and damaging a door inside a St. Charles police car, the officer said.

Ryan Burrows, 26, was charged Thursday with third-degree assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and second-degree property damage. Court records indicated Burrows is homeless.
