A man has been arrested and charged after sheriff's deputies say he punched a police officer in the face.

24-year-old Stephen Decker is charged with harassment and trespass.

Ontario County Sheriff's Deputies say Decker, who is homeless, refused to leave the America's Best Value Inn in Geneva. The owner of the hotel called sheriff's deputies and during their investigation, they say Decker punched a police officer in the face with a closed fist.

Decker was taken into custody and was sent to the Ontario County Jail on $5,000 cash bail.
