Drunken teen allegedly kicked officer
On Aug. 6 at around 12:53 a.m., police were called to Acadia Drive for a report of a loud juvenile party. When they arrived, officers found most of the party goers had not been drinking. However, one of them — Kaenan S. S. Casey, 18, of Eagle River allegedly had been drinking and fled the residence when officers arrived. Police said Casey later returned and was taken into custody. While he was being taken to a patrol car, Casey allegedly tried to break free and screamed at officers.

Casey was cited for minor consuming alcohol and arrested on charges of assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
