A 15-year-old was arrested Sunday and now faces felony assault charges after trying to fight his arresting officer. Lt. Dale Green with the Aberdeen Police Department said it was reported at 10:18 AM Sunday morning. A 15-year-old known runaway with a Grays Harbor Superior Court warrant was reported at a home in the 200 block of East Wishkah Street.
Sgt. Lampkey responded alone as other officers had been called to back up a Hoquiam weapons complaint. But when he tried to place the teen under arrest, the teen fought back, aggressively resisting. Lamkey sustained a cut lip and some abrasions.
The teen was placed into custody as other officers arrived, and is now charged with assault in the 3rd degree and resisting arrest.
