LANSING, Mich. — UPDATE: Teen in controversial LPD arrest pleads guilty
The 16-year-old is facing several charges, including assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

Officers were called to the scene in the 1100 block of Dakin Street on June 14 at 11:26 a.m. by orders from a judge to apprehend two suspects, a 15-year-old boy, and a 16-year-old girl.

Officer Lindsey Howley was able to secure the boy and then went to assist Officer Bailey Ueberroth who was trying to restrain the female.

The female had tried to escape and force was used to restrain her and put her in the patrol car.

That move by officers led to former Lansing police chief Mike Yankowski announced on July 30 that Officer Howley would be suspended for three days and Officer Ueberroth would be placed on probation for six months.

The teenager will have dispositional hearing on Oct. 1
