CLEVELAND (AP) — Transit Authority police say an officer used pepper spray on a crowd trying to prevent them from taking an intoxicated teenager to police headquarters.

WKYC-TV says the incident happened Sunday as a “Black Lives Matter” conference was ending.

Conference participant Destinee Henton says people formed a barricade around a police cruiser and began chanting. She says one officer began pepper spraying people.

In a statement, the Rapid Transit Authority says officers “peacefully removed” an intoxicated 14-year-old from a bus and took him to a bus shelter. A crowd began gathering and the teen was placed in a cruiser. Transit officials say an officer used pepper spray when the crowds wouldn’t allow the police car to leave.

The boy later was released to his mother. There weren’t any arrests.

    Don’t make something an issue until it’s an issue, why create a problem? The police in THIS case were doing their jobs, “officers “peacefully removed” an intoxicated 14-year-old from a bus and took him to a bus shelter.”

      Exactly. So the police can’t Help someone? Please report on something newsworthy like the idiots who decided to interfere with the police helping a drunk kid or why a 14 year old was drunk to begin with. They deserved to be sprayed for being an ignorant MOB. Stop claiming to be representing black people when you’re doing dumb shhhh like this. BAW, you’re losing point quickly

    The officer used the only option that the lawless crowd afforded him. If you don’t want to get pepper sprayed, don’t interfere with police that are doing their job.

    We must insist the police be drug tested for anabolic steroids. The police are amped up on drugs and that explains there state of constant rage. Our warriors are trained to always be in a state of LETHAL alert for any and all interactions with the public. They enjoy brutality and murder and know thanks to the police unions they will never be held accountable.

      Not only is that comment a lie, it’s also stupid. If police are in a heightened alert state, it’s because of idiots like you who can’t see past a badge/uniform to realize They are people too

        I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…people are people, they do what people do. It doesn’t matter what’s in front of or behind your name, where u work or who u know. If you’re a no good person, you’ll be no good no matter the circumstance. Case in point ⬆️⬆️⬆️
