Dobbs Ferry Police were called to a Storm Street residence just before midnight on September 10 after the mother and stepfather of a 16-year-old said they were having a dispute.
The parents reported the teen was upset because they would not let him leave the home and began punching himself in the face.
Upon arriving at the scene, police reported seeing the teen walking away from the home and the two adults asked police to stop him.
According to the police sergeant at the scene, the teen ignored his commands to stop walking. The officer said he grabbed the teen's shirt to stop him and the teen responded by twisting the officer's left arm, causing him pain to his shoulder and arm.
A second officer assisted in chasing down the teen, who was eventually stopped and handcuffed. He was charged with felony Assault in the Second Degree; as well as misdemeanors Resisting Arrest and Obstruction of Governmental Administration.
The sergeant was taken to the hospital for treatment.
The teenager was arraigned and remanded to Westchester County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
