Two Officers Injured, Three Teens Cited After Large Crowd Emerges in West Allis
On Saturday, at approximately 7:00 PM, West Allis Police Officers responded to a business in the 10900 block of West Oklahoma Avenue for a large crowd gathering in the parking lot of the business. Initial reports indicate the Incredi-Roll Skate and Family Fun Center had reached capacity and could no longer admit persons to the business.
The crowd, estimated at 100-200 people, would not leave the parking lot of the business and several individuals in the crowd became disorderly. Several individuals from the crowd began to enter the intersection of South 108th Street and West Oklahoma Avenue and also entered the parking lots and establishments of some nearby businesses.
Initially, the disorderly individuals refused to leave the area and would not follow officers’ instructions. The WAPD with assistance from other area law enforcement agencies ultimately dispersed the disorderly individuals. Milwaukee County Transit assisted police by sending extra County buses to the area.
One police car was also damaged during the incident. Police tell CBS 58 they do not have the individuals responsible for the damage to the police car.
Two West Allis police officers received minor injuries chasing suspects and did not seek medical attention.
Three teens from Milwaukee were taken into custody. A 14-year-old female received a citation for disorderly conduct. A 15-year-old man received citations for disorderly conduct, resisting an officer and hindering an officer. And a 16-year-old who throw a piece of asphalt at an officer and missed has been referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office for recklessly endangering safety, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The circumstances surrounding this entire incident are still under investigation.
