    Teen charged with police assault | Jacksonville.com

    I "like" the defense used by the teen: He didn't mean to shoot at the officer... the gun just went off as he pulled it out to shoot at the officer... yuck.

    A Jacksonville teenager was charged with assaulting police Saturday after a gun was fired as police chased carjacking suspects through Springfield.

    Officer L.A. Griffin was following a car that had been reported stolen in a carjacking when its driver crashed into a hydrant at Fifth and Market streets about 3 a.m., a police report showed.

    Two people ran from the car, and Griffin heard a shot as he tried to watch first one suspect then the other, the report said.

    Police soon found two youths, ages 16 and 17, in a vacant house that was broken into in the 1300 block of Market.

    A semiautomatic gun was found in an alley a couple of blocks away.

    The police report said the 16-year-old told officers he tried to pull the gun from his pocket as he ran, and fired it accidentally.

    He was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, burglary and carrying a concealed firearm, the report said.

    The 17-year-old was charged with burglary.

    Maybe related to Plaxico Burress? What's a 16yo doing carrying a gun? Who wants to volunteer to go "slap" his parents?

    Yeah right...
    and if he has scored a hit, it would have been "accidental "too...

    where do these yahoos come up with this stuff?

    Go directly to jail. Do not pass "Go". Do not collect $200.

    What an idiot.

    I think we can all see where these 2 are headed. Maybe the state will get lucky and someone named "Big Bubba" will cleanse the gene pool before they are released to hurt someone.

    Man, what is going on in Jacksonville lately. It seems like the police have had their hands more full than usual.

    And sad to know that these kids got such a violent start so early. Where are these kids' parents?

    No worries....the prison time he'll get won't be punishment; the gov't given excuse will be it's from his "own protection from the evil, nasty, ND causing guns."
