A 17-year old mother was arrested by Galesburg Police for the third time in less than two months. Galesburg Police yesterday was dispatched to the 400 block of Yates Street for a 911 hang-up investigation. Officers could hear a female crying in the background during the call, and knew the phone belonged to a 17-year old mother whom police have had numerous encounters with recently. Officers later observed the teen running through backyards on Yates Street and she was taken into custody. She emitted a strong alcoholic odor and admitted to drinking Hennessey earlier in the day. She was wanting to see her infant son. The teen refused to get into a patrol car and struggled with officers before finally complying after officers were forced to use pepper spray on her. She was charged with Resisting and Public Intoxication. She was arrested in June for Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor and Resisting Arrest. She was arrested earlier this month for Resisting Arrest and Fighting. GPD reported the incident to DCFS who will be conducting an investigation.
