Penfield, N.Y. (WHAM) - Investigators with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office say a Rochester man intentionally rear ended a vehicle driven by an off-duty RPD officer last week in Penfield.

The initial hit and run crash happened on April 12 around 9:10 p.m. on Route 441 and Five Mile Line Road.

According to the felony complaint obtained by 13WHAM News, Brendon Burns was driving the vehicle that bumped the back of another vehicle about three times.

Deputies say when the driver of the car that was hit got out to check on the other driver to see if everything was all right, the rear vehicle driven by Burns pulled around the car in front, hitting the car and the driver.

Court documents also say Burns intentionally drove his vehicle at the victim and struck the victim.

The victim sustained pain, swelling, multiple cuts and a fractured rib.

Burns was found at a home on Milburn Street in Rochester.

Police also found a 2008 Honda Civic. They say the vehicle had damage consistent to the crash, and that it matched a witness description.

Investigators say, during an interview with Burns, he made admissions about the crime.

He was arraigned in Penfield Town Court and remanded to Monroe County jail on $15,000 cash/$30,000 bond.
