Officer attacked in scuffle with teens at MN high school

The incident happened during a "disturbance" at Braham Area High School

Two teenage girls are in custody and facing criminal charges following a confrontation with police officers at a high school in east-central Minnesota.

It happened Thursday at Braham Area High School in Braham, Minnesota, which is on the border of Isanti and Kanabec counties.

According to the local police department, a detective was dispatched to the campus that afternoon to deal with a "disturbance involving two female juvenile students," one 15 and the other 17:

When the detective tried to direct the pair into an office area to speak with them, one became "physically combative," forcing the officer to "physically direct the student," the news release says.

While he was doing this, the second student "attacked the detective."

At this point he called for help, and another officer arrived on the scene and was able to help subdue the girl.

One of the officers received minor injuries in the melee, and the girls have been booked into a juvenile detention center for disorderly conduct and "obstructing (the) legal process."

Interestingly, police say the two students were also arrested on outstanding warrants for aggravated assault and disorderly conduct in Wisconsin.

Authorities have not specified the nature of the initial disturbance involving the students, though an investigation is currently underway.
