Incident Summary:
 
    
On July 23, 2013 an officer was on patrol on Hanover St. in Glen Rock Borough when he observed two people standing over a semi-conscious female lying on the sidewalk. The female, who appeared young in age, was vomiting, and incoherent.

The officer stopped to check on the welfare of the female and was informed that they found her falling and throwing up as she walked down the street. During this time Richard Grant tried to get the female into his house, refusing to obey orders given by the police officer in order to check the female’s safety and well being.

Grant told the juveniles to lie about where they were drinking and where the alcohol came from. Once Grant got the female into the front door to his house he attempted to deny access to police.

Police summoned an ambulance for the female after finding that she was thirteen years old and extremely intoxicated. The investigation revealed that Grant furnished the two girls, aged thirteen and fourteen, with alcohol while at his house. While speaking with Grant the odor of alcohol was detected on his breath as well.

Grant was informed that he was under arrest and told to place his hands behind his back. Grant refused the officers orders and struggled with police in the street as they were taking him into custody. During the arrest an officer received abrasions to his elbow, which did not need medical treatment.

Richard Lorenzo Grant, age 18 of Hanover St. Glen Rock, was charged with Corruption of Minors, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Obstruction of Administration of Law or Other Governmental Functions, Resisting Arrest, Simple Assault, Furnishing Alcohol to Minors, and Underage Drinking.

Grant was transported to central booking for arraignment. Grant was released after posting $20,000 bail.
