Teen Punches Cop After Underage Party, Police Say

An 18-year-old Lower Southampton man was arrested after he is alleged to have committed several crimes in Falls.

An 18-year-old Lower Southampton man is facing charges after an incident in Falls Township where he is alleged to have pushed a female police officer to the ground.

Duncan Mullin is charged with aggravated assault, manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, resisting arrest, false identification to a law enforcement officer, hindering apprehension and related offenses.

Falls police report they were called to Danbury Road to break up a reported underage drinking party at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.

When patrol units arrived, they spotted several people jumping over a fence to flee the party, police said.

A female officer was able to catch up with three young people - one of them being Mullin - who left the party; she asked them to sit on a curb, according to an affidavit. When the 18-year-old sat down, police say, his backpack made a clanking sound.

According to police, Mullin pulled a 40-ounce bottle of beer out of the bag and poured it out. However, he did not listen to the officer’s first order to dump the entire bag out, court documents said.

The officer again asked Mullin to dump the bag out, but he said it was empty. Police said the bag was clearly not empty.

A search of the bag found what is believed to be marijuana, police said.

As the officer went to handcuff Mullin, he yelled he was not going to be restrained and pushed her backward, police said. According to the affidavit, the officer struck her head on the ground and the suspect stood over her before he ran.

Shortly after, patrol officers took Mullin into custody in the area of Standwood and Hanford roads after a chase.

He was arraigned and later released from county jail on 10 percent of $50,000 bail.

Another loser who wants to be tuff. Should have gave hime the phillly paddy wagon treatment while wearing that backpack. As usual he probaly will get fined and probation cause the judge will feel sorry for him.

I guess it was not a 40oz of Freedom. Feel sorry for the cop

Good for him. I wish he had gotten away. He is 18 and ought to be allowed to drink his beer without being harassed. Prohibition didn't work in the 1920s. Why would we think it will work now. This used to be a free country. I am glad some are still willing to stand up for themselves. This kid deserves a medal.
concerned citizen February 27, 2013 at 05:22 PM
Prohibition is when its completely illegal...you can LEGALLY drink when you're 21 so no its not prohibited. And he could of just ran when he got caught no need to hit a female...sorry Mr Murphy but you are so incorrect with everything you said.
Jenny February 27, 2013 at 07:41 PM
Oh like underagers don't drink @ family parties such as Christmas....in Italy they even have their children drink a glass of wine @ dinner...& like Jerry said prohibition didnt work in the 1920s in this day & age its definitely not gonna work. Laws against marijuana aren't gonna work either people still smoke it everyday & most start when they're 10, 11,12,13 & its about to be legalized. I don't know who you are Concerned Citizen but u need to stop being soooo concerned with the way u think this world should be & be more concerned about learning about the reality of the way the world actually is...in this Time & Era.
concerned citizen February 27, 2013 at 08:28 PM
I know how the world is does that make it right? The world is filled with disgusting people you hear it on the news everyday someone getting robbed raped beaten...is that okay? There's a reason there's rules with alcohol just like when marijuana is legalized there will be rules with that. And I'm sorry who smokes weed when there 10,11,or 12? Most kids start high school age like 14-16 I'm only 21 I know all about this. Was I drinking illegally? Yeah have I smoked weed? Yup. Does that make it right? Absolutely not. So don't tell me what I should be concerned about when in fact maybe you should be a little more concerned about people getting robbed raped and shot every day since that's a legitimate issue to be concerned about. Or look more at the part of the article where he put his hands on a female. That's a little more important and should NEVER happen. Idc about the underage drinking really do I think its wrong yes HOWEVER no matter what age a "man" should never lay a hand on a female. Point blank.

And no I wasn't allowed to drink at family parties until I was 21 I know a lot of families that have this rule.

That woman cop should have gotten up and teasered him right in the nut sack. You dont assault a woman, cop ,or woman cop. Hope he gets hung by his taint and beat with golf clubs by the female cops boyfriend or husband. Video it and put it on the cops Facebook.

Stop lying about ur age what 21 year old calls themself a concerned citizen? First of all I'm from Philadelphia, I've seen & witnessed it all. Did u guys know that the police threw a man in a wheelchair up against a wall, mind you, a truly crippled man.Just threw him against the wall&searched him for drugs cuz he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.you didn't see that on the news cause the police didn't want themselves looking corrupt.HELLO! It's the end of the month & cops need to maintain a required min. of arrests.Doesn't any1 think just maybe, the cops were being corrupt? & I do feel extremely bad for the woman cop being hurt I'm a woman myself, been abused & almost raped but I got myself out of that situation. How about this, did anyone of you guys see what the woman's hair was cut? If it was cut short like most female cops he might've mistaken her for a man. I'm sure he would go to extremes&hit an officer to get out if an extremely illegal situation. Duh he was underage & had marijuana on his person! The point is he is locked up now, he will learn his lesson, if he does get probation, then good for him, he'll learn even MORE.& I don't think any of you should be judging anybody, when its time to be judged, God will judge us, its people like you ccitizen that make people corrupt.judge judge judge right?&I'm 25 hun, everyone I know except 1person who had asthma all smoked weed in their preteens... It's the UNcool kids in hs that start when they're 16.

Remember I am from Philly & seen it all... Seems to me a majority of the residents in Bucks County live in a bubble...sad to say...its people like you concerned citizen that make people so corrupt with your narrow-minded opinions...judge, judge, judge right? Way to get so dramatic over a news letter. Did u forget this is America & I have the right to state my opinion just like you. Keep being dramatic, stop with ur nasty words, & grow up!
concerned citizen February 27, 2013 at 09:46 PM
I really am 21 lol no reason to lie about my age. I lived in Kensington for 8 years. When I was younger my mom was on meth and we lived in a baseball field so yeah I've seen a lot you....but honestly does any of that have to do with this article? Not at all. And what nasty words did I use? And I'm being dramatic please ms remember I'm from Philly and seen it all. I think you're the dramatic one :)
Jenny February 27, 2013 at 10:10 PM
U open your mouth a little too much for being from Philly & I LOVE how I say I'm from Philly & everyone & their mom is all of a sudden from Kensington...if u were from Philly u WOULD have learned not to speak that way cuz ur mouth can kill you, so I doubt ur from Phillystop using the Kensington bit to get by in the burbs if u knew where the crippled wheel chairman was thrown against the wall, it was & k&somerset...the reason I'm postin these kind of things is to let all the ppl that live in their narrowminded bubbles that cops CAN be corrupt, omg a kid hit a cop he made a mistake & you're making it out like there aren't worse things that happen in the world since ur making such a big deal out of nothing serious, u should change ur name on here to Drama Queen
concerned citizen February 27, 2013 at 10:16 PM
Lol its so funny how you're so quick to pull the Philly card! And actually I never said anything about him hitting a cop I said about him putting his hands on a female. Don't get it twisted hun. And you're from Philly yet you're running your mouth...thought people from Philly didn't do that! And you're the one that started running your mouth check my first post under Jerry Murphy. The very first comment isn't me. I know there are worse things but I was simply commenting on THIS article. What THIS kid dis. Not the world in general. You should check your self before you run your mouth to someone you know nothing about.

Patricia February 28, 2013 at 11:46 AM
I somehow don't believe this story, falls township police (most) are known for being overly agressive, remember they need to holdup their name "BEST OF BUCKS". RIGHT! WAKE UP AND SEE REALITY THE WAY IT IS.
