An Austin man, accused of kicking his brother in the head after he passed gas, has pleaded not guilty to domestic assault, the Rochester Post Bulletin reports.

The charge is considered a felony based on 33-year-old Hector Alonzo Estrada's previous legal history, and it carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine, the newspaper reports.

According to court documents, Estrada is accused of kicking his brother and then leaving through a back door, the newspaper reports.

Police say they followed Estrada's footprints in the snow to a nearby McDonald's restaurant, where he was arrested.
