Teen girl who filmed herself springing a friend from NYPD custody faces charges
A Bronx teen girl who interfered the arrest of her two friends and freed them from the police cruiser is now facing troubles together with her friends.
Thursday, two 14-years girls went down on another girl allegedly punching and kicking her on the corner of the street. Cops tried to arrest the girls but got the fightback from them under the shots of the locals. Eventually the girls were handcuffed and taken to the police SUV.
That’s when their 15-year-old friend appeared on the scene.
While shooting the video on her cellphone she opened the unlocked backdoor of the police vehicle crying: “You got it, run! Run!”, and her friend hit the road down the street. Of course she didn’t escape and could not run too far, cops tracked her down and arrested again. The 15-year-old was charged with obstruction
"She mockingly let her go and mockingly put it on social media as if it's a joke," a former NYPD sergeant tells CBS New York. "It's not a joke." But some at the scene argued that police handled the girls too roughly: "These are children, there's a way to do things," says a female bystander
