The information was provided by the Yorktown Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A 24-year-old Elmsford man faces several criminal charges in Yorktown following an argument with his girlfriend, Yorktown police said.

Jeremiah Herring's girlfriend reported to police on Oct. 16 at about 3:22 a.m. that the man had thrown her to the ground and restrained her during a verbal argument. 

Police said the woman also alleged Herring had punched a dresser mirror and had shattered it.

Following the investigation, officers attempted to arrest Herring for physically harassing the victim and damaging her property. When the officer tried to take him into custody he physically resisted the arrest, police said. 

Police said Herring, who was placed in a Yorktown police car, kicked the rear window of that car and caused damage of more than $250. 

Herring was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony; fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor; resisting arrest, a misdemeanor; and second-degree harassment, a violation.

The man was remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail. Herring is due in Yorktown Town Court on Oct. 18.
