A Brooklyn man was arraigned Wednesday after he used a fraudulent credit card at an East Garden City watch store, Nassau County police said.

Michael Clennon, 32, ran from officers who arrived after he bought merchandise Tuesday night at Tourneau Watches on Old Country Road, police said.

Officers caught him after a short foot chase, but he fought them, police said, and two officers with minor lacerations were treated at the scene.

Clennon had several fraudulent credit cards and was charged with two counts of third-degree grand larceny, five counts of second-degree possession of forged instruments, two counts of first-degree identity theft and resisting arrest, police said.

Bail was set at $25,000. Clennon, of 672 46th St., Sunset Park, was represented by Legal Aid, which does not comment on cases.
