UPDATE (Oct. 18, 3:49 p.m.)—The mother of one of the teenagers who was charged in an incident on March 16 contacted Patch after her son appeared in court on Oct. 18.
"My son never touched that officer. He never fought with that officer. We waited for our day in court, and he was cleared from all charges," the mother said.
"Any charges placed against this 14-year-old Middle River boy were proven false. My son was acquitted of every charge. Thank God we had tons of witnesses who saw what really happened. I'm just glad that the truth has come out. This officer threw my son. He was in crutches for three days and his glasses were broken."
Patch has not identified the mother because the accused was a minor.
The mother was referring to this portion of the previously posted article, UPDATE: 6 Arrested in White Marsh Mall Robbery, Fight:
A male 14-year-old Middle River resident began cursing at a police officer after he was asked to leave the mall. The boy pushed and struck the officer and was arrested, according to Capt. Michael Balog of the White Marsh police precinct.
A "hostile crowd" of between 50 and 100 people gathered around the officer, Balog said.
David Reed, 33, of the unit block of Lawrence Road in Dundalk was arrested after intervening in the melee. He was charged with resisting and interfering with an arrest and disorderly conduct, court records showed.
The 15-year-old suspect was charged with assault, disorderly conduct and was released to his mother, police said.
