Teenager Attacks Garden City Police Officer
The 14-year-old is now facing four felony charges.
According to the Idaho Statesman, it all happened Sunday afternoon, when Garden City police were alerted about a reckless driver on Chinden.
The reckless driver? A 14-year-old in a car that was reported stolen from Boise. When officers found the driver, he initially tried to flee on foot, but was apprehended.
Once in the back of the patrol car the teenager began to "thrash about". The officers then put him in leg restraints, but that didn't stop him.
The Statesman reports that he managed to get free from his leg restraints "brought his handcuffs to the front of his body."
"ripped off a portion of the plexiglass divider between the front and rear seats and attempted to grab the officer as he drove. The officer was able to safely stop his vehicle and subdue the male once again"
He's now booked in a juvenile detention center on two felony charges of battering an officer, felony grand theft, felony destruction of a confinement facility and misdemeanor resisting and obstructing an officer.
