SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A man shot and grazed by an off-duty San Francisco police officer after allegedly hitting her following a fender bender has pleaded not guilty to felony assault on an officer.

Joel Henriquez also pleaded not guilty to assault, making criminal threats, resisting arrest and misdemeanor reckless driving during his arraignment in San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday.

The 37-year-old Henriquez is accused of punching the off-duty police sergeant after the two got into a minor collision on Highway 280 on Sunday.

Police say the officer fired her gun in self-defense, and debris from the round hit the ground and struck Henriquez in his ankle.

Henriquez is out on $115,000 bail. He is due back in court on Feb. 19 to set a preliminary hearing date.
