Tasered Teen Girl Charged With Striking Cops Outside School

Chicago - A teen girl has been charged with allegedly attacking police responding to a disturbance outside a West Side high school, police said.

Police responded about 2 p.m. Monday to a “large” disturbance after the dismissal of a school in the 5200 block of West Congress Parkway, police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines said. Clark Academy Prep Magnet High School is located at 5101 W. Harrison St., according to a Web directory.

A 17-year-old girl punched an officer in the face after she was ordered to disperse, Gaines said. As a result, officers used a Taser to restrain the teen, he said. The teen and two officers were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, Gaines said.

Keaira Matthews is a current student at Clark Academy Prep Magnet High School and is in 11th grade, according to Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Monique Bond. Matthews has had no disciplinary history, Bond said.

The girl was charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a police officer and two counts of resisting arrest, Gaines said.

Grand Central Area detectives are investigating.
