Damian Pimentel, 22, was arraigned Oct. 22 on charges of second-degree assault, resisting arrest and second-degree obstructing governmental administration.
In a news release, police said Fourth Precinct officers were dispatched to Pimentel’s home at 179 109th Ave. in Elmont at 12:35 a.m. after someone called 911 to report a domestic disturbance.
Police said Pimentel – who was not involved in the disturbance – became uncooperative with officers as they were trying to investigate what was happening. He allegedly shoved one of the officers and caused the unidentified cop to fall backwards and hit his head on a chair.
He then allegedly refused to be handcuffed by other officers and flailed his arms while struggling with the cops.
Authorities said the injured officer was taken to a local hospital and treated for head, neck, back and shoulder pain.
Online court records show Pimentel was released on $1,000 bail. He is due back in court on Oct. 25.
