MILFORD, Del. (CBS) — Three juveniles were arrested after a bizarre incident at a buffet restaurant in Delaware.
The incident played out at about 3:20 p.m. on June 20th at the Chinatown Buffet on North DuPont Highway in Milford.
According to investigators, officers with the Milford Police Department were called to the restaurant for the report of disorderly customers.
When they arrived, they encountered a 17-year-old male who was yelling and cursing loudly. The 17-year-old was arrested after several attempts were made to get him to end his behavior.
As the officers were taking the 17-year-old into custody, investigators say a 12-year-old female and a 15-year-old male began to curse at the officers.
After attempts were made to get the pair to calm down, officers attempted to take the 12-year-old into custody. Police say the 12-year-old then threw multiple punches, striking the officer in the chest twice.
