The boy, 16, 200 block Meigs St., was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Officers were called to the detention home at about 4:30 p.m. Friday when the boy — who was not in custody at the time — began causing problems in the facility’s lobby, according to a Sandusky police report.
When police arrived, the boy began shouting “get the cops away from me” and paced back and forth with fists clenched, the report said.
Both detention home staff and police officers suspected the boy was on drugs, the report said.
The boy eventually allowed his mother to drive him to the hospital, but police followed in case of further problems, the report said.
Once inside the emergency room, the boy continued to pace and shout. He grabbed a pen off a desk, brandishing it like a weapon, the report said.
When the boy continued shouting and threatened to beat up officers, he was arrested and fought against police, the report said.
The boy was taken back to the Erie County Detention Home—this time in custody.
