Three Teens Face Charges After Assault on Officer at Warren's Lincoln High SchoolSource: Google Street View

Chaos erupted at a Michigan high school earlier this week when three teenagers clashed with police officers, injuring one and sparking a flurry of criminal charges. According to FOX 2, the violent encounter unfolded at Lincoln High School in Warren, where a juvenile and two 18-year-olds, Danasia Kennedy-Johnson, and Xavier Tayvione-Demarr Jones, initially planned to confront another student.

The situation took a turn for the worse when, in an attempt to arrest the individuals, a police officer suffered a head injury after all three fell to the ground during the scuffle, sending the officer to the hospital. While trying to control the situation, one of the teens assaulted the officer, according to CBS Detroit. The three suspects are now facing serious charges in connection with the assault.

The Eastpointe juvenile is dealing with a bevy of charges, including a four-year felony for assaulting, resisting, or obstructing a police officer and causing injury. Kennedy-Johnson received charges that could lead to a decade behind bars for assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, among other counts. Jones faces three counts of assaulting an officer, as detailed in reports by the Macomb Daily.

In a statement obtained by FOX 2, Macomb County Prosecutor Peter J. Lucido expressed his condemnation of the violence, stating, "Our police officers risk their lives everyday to keep our community safe and violence against them is unacceptable in a civil society. Such actions will be met with the full force of the law,"

The injured officer, initially hospitalized in serious condition, has been released and is now recovering at home, Captain James Wolf mentioned during Tuesday night's Warren City Council meeting, reported by Macomb Daily
