A 17 year old Caripichima teen was slapped with three charged arising out of a struggle with police officers.
The incident was recorded and posted on social media.
The teen appeared in court yesterday and has been released on $35.000 bail.
The three charges were for assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty, resisting arrest and using obscene language.
The boy reportedly pled guilty to two of the charges.
Reports indicate that officers of the Freeport Police Station had responded to a report of an assault at St. Mary’s Junction.
When the officers arrived they noticed the student in school uniform with blood on his clothes.
Police then attempted to question the teen and that when things escalated.
The video shows the teen wrestling with officers as they attempt to subdue him. As the drama played out a large crowd gathered at the scene in front of a popular fast food outlet. Onlookers could be heard telling police to leave the boy alone while others urged the teen to calm down.
