Fish was initially charged with one count of criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a class A misdemeanor, but during the arrest process at the police department, Fish refused lawful orders to get his fingerprints taken. He was subsequently charged with one count of obstructing governmental administration in the second degree, a class A misdemeanor. 

As officers were completing court paperwork for the arrest, Fish then kicked a door in the arrest processing room causing damage. 

As officers attempted to intervene, Fish kicked an officer in the leg and physically resisted officers as officers were trying to handcuff him. He was subsequently arrested again on additional charges at 10:45  p.m. Fish was charged with the following: one count of harassment in the second degree, one count of criminal tampering in the third degree, a class B misdemeanor, one count of criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a class A misdemeanor, two counts of obstructing governmental administration in the second degree, a class A misdemeanor, and two counts of resisting arrest, a class A misdemeanor. 

Police said Fish was transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility to await arraignment.
