Teen charged in maced police case

A 17-year-old from Fostoria has been charged after he allegedly sprayed two Fostoria Police Department officers with mace Friday night.

Police made a traffic stop in the 800 block of North Countyline Street at 11:12 p.m. Friday, but rather than staying in the vehicle, a youth ran and led two officers in a foot pursuit, said a Fostoria Police Department spokesman. During the chase, the youth sprayed the officers with mace, but was arrested at 12:09 a.m. Saturday.

A report Saturday stated the officers were taken to ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital.

The youth, whose name was not released, was charged with two counts of felonious assault and one count of obstructing official business, the spokesman said. He is being held at Seneca County Youth Center.
