WALKER, Minn. - Four teens were charged Friday in connection with a school altercation that led to to an alleged attack on a deputy.
The suspects appeared in a Cass County courtroom, where one male was charged with a felony count of assault on a police officer, while a second male and two females were charged with a number of gross misdemeanor counts involving obstruction of the legal process.
Law enforcement was called to the Walker-Hackensack-Akeley School Wednesday on a report of a verbal altercation between two groups of students. As officers were arriving they observed a male party fleeing from the building. The teen was detained for questioning by a Cass County Deputy, and quickly became verbally and physically aggressive toward the officer.
As the Deputy was attempting to place the suspect under arrest a second juvenile male ran up and kicked the deputy in the back. Medical reports indicate that redness and bruising were visible and there is a possible fracture as a result of the assault.
While the males were being placed under arrest two female juveniles began fighting with officers in an apparent attempt to free their male friends.
