    A Rutland man is behind bars on $5,000 bail after city police say he broke into a home on Baxter Street and then kicked and spat at officers who arrested him.

    David H. Ames, 51, pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court this week to felony charges of unlawful trespass in an occupied residence and burglary, as well as misdemeanor counts of unlawful trespass and simple assault with fluids against a law enforcement officer.

    Ames was arrested Friday after a homeowner on Baxter Avenue called to report that an unknown man was in his upstairs apartment.

    Ames, who has a different Baxter Street address, was led at gunpoint out of the home by the tenant. Police say that during his arrest, hand cuffs and leg restraints were applied to Ames, along with a spit mask because the suspect was repeatedly spitting at officers.

    Ames allegedly pounded his head against the cage of a police cruiser and later banged his head repeatedly in a holding cell at the police station where he was “tied down” briefly. He was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment of self-inflicted injuries, police said.
