A teenage male is in a heap of trouble, after assaulting an off duty cop during the early morning hours today, March 20, 2017 on the 12000 block of Academy Rd.  Apparently, he was engaged in behavior that caused an off duty cop to attempt to detain him to arrest him. That is when things turned south, and the teenager started to fight with the cop and picked the officer and is alleged to have slammed the officer into the ground, causing a head injury.

The teenager ran from the scene,where he hid  behind some buildings in the vicinity.   About 30 minutes after the assault, they were taken into custody. It is unknown if they will be charged as an adult or not. The officer is recovering from injuries.
