An out of control boy was arrested on charges of assault after allegedly spitting in his mother’s face and threatening to kill a police officer, police in Canada said.

Brantford Police said that the 17-year-old boy spat in his mother’s face three times during an argument.

He faces several charges after making death threats and uttering racist remarks to police officers. The teenager was charged with mischief of less than $5,000 and assault.

He was also charged with assault with intent to resist arrest, assaulting a peace officer, uttering threats and two counts of violation of probation.

He is being held in custody for a bail hearing.

Police said that they received a call around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, from concerned neighbors who heard the dispute between the mother and her child.

Police said that the youth spat on his mother at least three times and damaged a wall of her house by kicking it. When approached by the police, the young man ran and a short foot chase ensued.

An officer wrestled the youth to the ground to handcuff him. The young man resisted arrest, spat at an officer and threatened to buy a gun and kill another officer.

He also threatened to cut the throat of an officer, once he is released from custody. Several officers were needed to place the accused in a police cruiser, where the aggression continued.

The boy kicked the door of the vehicle in an attempt to break free.

When they arrived at the police station, the young man refused to leave the car and repeatedly shouted racial slurs at the officers.
