A Sandusky teen was arrested early Saturday after she allegedly tried to assault a police officer.

The 17-year-old West Monroe Street girl was charged with assault on a police officer, underage consumption, resisting arrest disorderly conduct and a curfew violation.

Additionally, a 15-year-old Pearl Street boy, 17-year-old Pierce Street boy and Davion White, 21, of the 1400 block of McDonough St., were charged with disorderly conduct. The Pierce Street boy was also charged with resisting arrest.

Officers were called to the 800 block of Seavers Way just before 2 a.m. after a caller said there were people fighting in the street, according to a Sandusky police report.

The Monroe Street girl allegedly emerged from a home after officers had already arrested White and the other teens, the report said.

She was allegedly loud, and ignored officers when they told her to go back inside.  When police told the girl she was under arrest, she pulled away from Officer John Powell and began swinging at him, the report said.

She then allegedly kicked Powell's legs and tried to punch his face. 

Another officer then used a Taser to subdue the teen.

She and the other juveniles were taken to the Erie County Detention Home and White was released.
