A Carbon County teen was placed in a detention center after he was charged with assaulting a police officer.

State police at Fern Ridge said troopers were dispatched to Lake Drive in Lake Harmony, Kidder Township, about 4:52 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 31, to assist township police with a domestic incident.

On scene troopers were told a 15-year-old male and a female were engaged in a dispute during which the male threatened a township officer if he "touched his mother."

During the arrest of the female, the male teen assaulted Trooper Charles Phelps. He was placed under arrest for aggravated assault.

He was placed in a juvenile detention center pending a hearing before a county judge.
