Police: Man kicked window out of car

GLOVERSVILLE – City police said a man kicked out the rear window of a patrol car Tuesday after being arrested along with two other men for fighting in front of officers.

William T. Port Jr., 36, of 29 Romeyn Ave., Amsterdam, Joseph R. Norton, 26, of 72 Homestead Drive, and Ralph J. Nolan, 24, of 84 Homestead Drive, were charged with disorderly conduct.

Nolan also was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony, for kicking out the rear window of a patrol car.

Police said officers were dispatched to 84 Homestead Drive for a report of a family offense. During the investigation, police said, the three men began to argue and fight in the parking lot.

Capt. John Sira said the exact amount of damage to the patrol car will have to be determined, but he estimated it will cost at least $1,000 to have the window replaced.

Norton and Port were issued tickets to appear in City Court at a later date.

Nolan was processed and arraigned Tuesday in City Court. Bail was set at $1,500 cash or $5,000 bond. Nolan is expected to appear again in court Monday.
