Teen Arrested After Hitting Cop On Bus

BOLINGBROOK (CBS) — A Bolingbrook teenager hit a police officer in the face Tuesday as officers were responding to a fight on a school bus.

Bolingbrook police were called about the fight on a school bus that was stopped in the 200 block of South Bolingbrook Drive at 6:25 p.m. Tuesday, Police Lt. Mike Rompa said.

“As officers arrived on scene they observed a full bus load of students yelling profanities, throwing objects at the bus driver, and fighting,” Rompa said. “The bus driver identified three subjects who were the alleged offenders.”

The driver told police that 17-year-old William Nicholson and two other teens started a ruckus on the Valley View school bus as it was taking students home from Lincoln School, an alternative school in Joliet.

As police tried to escort Nicholson off the bus, he struck an officer in the face with his elbow, Rompa said. After a brief struggle, Nicholson was arrested.

Nicholson, of 507 DuBois Circle in Bolingbrook, was booked into the county jail on charges of aggravated battery and resisting arrest. The two boys have been ordered to appear in juvenile court.

The officer was not seriously hurt and was treated and released at a local hospital.

Police said they did not know what started the ruckus.

  • Brian

    Maybe if these black girls stopped having kids when they are 14, 15 and 16 years old we wouldn’t have these problems. I would put money on it that these punks have no idea who their fathers are.

  • jesse jr.

    If he moves to Chicago he can be the future CONSESUS

  • thug

    But he is a good boy…..Cries his mother..

  • Gail Upchurch

    White girls have babies without daddies too! Brian you ignorant person. I do agree its in how you bring them up. By the time you reach 17, you know the law hit a cop , go to jail. As I allways say an eye for an eye is the best way .Parents today don’t want to take responsibility it’s allways someone elses falt. Responsible children make responsible adults.

    I’m a black woman that lives on the southside of chicago & these comments that I see are pure racist…Just because you’re black doesn’t mean you raise your children to be thugs. My parents raised to to respect my elders & love all races, but I see some of you have narrow minds; which I assume was passed down to you by your parents…this child deserves to be locked up but you need to recognize it’s bad everywhere, just like the little whit boys that decide to bomb their schools so whats their excuse??? Stick to the facts & stop with all the racism it just shows how ugly you are.

    Go on the various local chicago news site and look for where they have slide shows of mug shots in the news. Count the total number of photos, then count the number of young white kids in the photos, then count the number of young black kids in the photos. Then answer the question: What is the race with the highest percentage of photos in the news? Your conclusion will tell you the comments are not based on race but on an the actual sign of the times, young black people commit more crimes. Besides getting tons of federal money and preffered treatment in contract set asides the problem speaks for itself. Can’t blame it on the white man, problem is at the black mans (or lack thereof) home.

    • Peaches

      I see the news & mugshots quite well; at the end of the day I know how I was raised & I don’t carry the entire black race on my shoulders…my family taught me that I’m an individual which my own mind; I never said this generation of african americans aren’t out here doing crime because I see it on the NEWS, but there are many more african americans that are living their lives the right way & they are great role models for our youth…but it all starts at home which in that case this problem is world wide…WHITE, BLACKS,MEXICANS, PUERTO RICANS & THE LIST GOES ON & ON. It’s just that the news pays more attention to the black communities when it comes to crimes.

  • Jerry Henderson

    Cleophus James where in the hell,did you to school?

    • Bill T

      That’s hilarious.

  • Ron

    Although you allm make very good points, i think the issue is the self image of our youth as a whole ,what i mean is if you dont’t have that maybach , or a gorgeous girl hanging off each arm ,or a six figure bank account and smoke drugs on a regular basis ,a constant womaniizer,or habitual criminal yourself these children will not respect you they will not listen to you they will not care about your opinions of them because you pay taxes ,youwork one or maybe even two jobs ,so you will never get thier adoration or respect because that is not the image of someone they would like to be associated with even if it is mom or dad or the law ,these children only respect in most cases negativity and if we don’t change these negative images that we and they see everyday not only will this behavior continue it will indeed get much worse for all races,creeds and colors.
