FAIRVIEW PARK, Ohio — A Fairview teenager was arrested after breaking curfew and kicking a police officer.

Police said they were called to a home on Saturday from a mother about her "out of control" son.

When police arrived, they said they tried counseling the teenager and left once he calmed down.

Less than an hour later, the teen's mother called police again and said she was afraid of her violent son.

The teenager was arrested for domestic violence. The juvenile detention facility refused to accept him and he was turned over to his father in Cleveland, according to police.

Police said around 11:15 p.m. that night, the teenager was seen walking on Lorain Avenue near the police department.

The teenager was supposed to be with his father and was out past curfew.

Police said the teenager became belligerent and started screaming profanities.

Authorities decided to take him into custody and he fought the police.

Police said after the teenager was handcuffed, he kicked one of the officers and spit twice in his face.

The teenager is being charged with curfew violation, violating the stay-at-home order and assault on a police officer.
