A man who tried to kick his niece was arrested in Sebastian, Florida.

SEBASTIAN – Officers were dispatched to the 300 block of Sebastian Crossings Blvd. Saturday morning at approximately 11:00 a.m. in reference to a disturbance.

At the scene, the Sebastian Police Department spoke with 49-year-old Raymond Glenn Rogers who “started to sway back and forth” with a heavy odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person, according to the report.

An officer asked Rogers what happened, and he stated that he got into an argument with his niece, and then “put his leg up” and tried kicking at her, the affidavit said.

“[Rogers] demonstrated in the front yard how he picked up one leg and tried kicking at his niece,” the officer said.

Police said Rogers was “all over the place and not making much sense” about what occurred at the home, according to the report.

Rogers kept telling the police that his niece has “issues” as he continued to sway back and forth, the report said.
