A New City man who was being taken to a hospital by police kicked out windows on two police cars and bit a police officer in an incident in New City on Monday, according to Clarkstown police.
Craig DiBianco, 36, was arrested after a confrontation with police who were called to a Georgetown Oval home in New City to investigate a domestic dispute. DiBianco is accused of doing more than $1,500 worth of damage to the two police vehicles.

DiBianco, according to police, was arrested and then began to struggle with officers — biting one of them in the hand.The officer was not injured.
Police said DiBianco was restrained and put in the back of another patrol car. DiBianco then kicked out the rear passenger side window of that car, police said.
DiBianco was taken to Clarkstown Police Headquarters in New City, where he was charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a felony, resisting arrest and harassment. He was arraigned in Clarkstown Town Court by Judge Howard Gerber and bail was set at $15,000. DiBianco is due to return to court on Wednesday.
