By The Mercury

A 16-year-old is in the custody of the Geary County Juvenile Detention Center after he allegedly battered a law enforcement officer Monday afternoon.

Sgt. Brad Ingalls said Officer Bill Schuck first detained Frank Thompson, Manhattan, at about 1:40 p.m. for smoking inside Sunset Cemetery.

Ingalls said the boy became belligerent after officers approached him, which resulted in a physical altercation, after which he was taken into custody. 

Thompson is scheduled to appear before a judge.
