Three Battle Creek Teens Arrested After Road Rage, Assault Incident
A case of road rage in Battle Creek over the weekend led to several teens being arrested.
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that just after 7:30pm Saturday, a 31-year-old Battle Creek man says he was driving along Roosevelt Ave. when his vehicle was almost struck by a car filled with teenagers acting recklessly. The driver followed the group until they reached a parking lot on E. Emmett St, where the man confronted the teens.
The Battle Creek Police say that the teens then assaulted the driver, and smashed his wife’s phone as she was trying to call 911. Some time after the suspects left the scene, they were identified based on witness testimony and cell phone pictures taken of them, and arrested.
The 17 and 18 year-olds now face assault and battery charges, with one of the teens facing a charge of interfering with a 911 call as well.
