A party gone wrong in Cranbrook’s Idlewild Park has led to charges against a 15-year old female.
The Cranbrook girl is being charged after police say an officer was kicked in the face.
Cst. Katie Forgeron says upon officers asking the teens to leave the park, most were cooperative but one took exception.
“Police officers gave her several chances to leave with her friends. She continued on yelling, screaming and swearing at the police officer.” explains Forgeron. “He arrested her for being drunk in public and causing a disturbance. At that time she started to kick and fight with the police officer and managed to kick him in the chest and face.”
RCMP did find evidence of alcohol and drug paraphernalia on a table nearby the fire.
Forgeron also says charges are being recommended against the young teen who police say also threatened to kill the officer.
“Right now we are recommending charges of assault of a police officer and uttering threats.”
