Cops Arrest Grand River Elementary Student – Video
While reading RSS items this morning I heard some yelling outside and took a look through our front window just in time to see three Lansing P.D. cruisers corralling a kid inside the Grand River Elementary School playground. A single cop chased him on foot, caught him, pulled the kid inside the school for a short period and then cuffed him and led him to a parked cruiser.
I managed to catch the last few minutes on video just because I really couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
Not sure exactly why this happened…
You can view this video at the YouTube site here.
Update: Uh-oh. I sent this to a few local news e-mail tip lines that I knew of and I got a couple bites. According to the Lansing State Journal the L.P.D. were responding to reports of stolen school property and the while they were chasing the kid down he punched an officer.
Update 2: I bid a warm welcome to all the new readers from the Michigan state government, Ingham County Schools, and other “officially” interested parties that I’m seeing in my server logs.
For the record: I am completely unaware of having done anything wrong here, and so far nobody has tried to tell me that I have. This was not intended as a shot against the L.P.D., the student involved, or the Grand River Elementary Magnet School. If there is any fault to be seen here it lies with the kid for allegedly punching an officer.
