LIMESTONE – A 14-year-old Cattaraugus County girl is charged with assault after allegedly kicking a Sheriff’s Deputy during an incident this week.
The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were attempting to assist the teen in getting mental health treatment during a welfare check in the Town of Limestone on Tuesday morning.
Deputies say the girl became combative and kicked a deputy and their patrol vehicle multiple times.
The teen, deputies say, was taken to Olean General Hospital under the state’s mental health law for evaluation.
The girl is charged with second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
Deputies say she was issued an appearance ticket and the case has been turned over to the probation department for further court proceedings.
