NEW VINEYARD — A 16-year-old boy was charged with pushing and grabbing his parents Thursday night and kicking holes in a wall, according to Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr.

Franklin County Deputy Andrew Morgan and Sgt. Nathan Bean responded to High Street for a report of a juvenile assaulting his parents at 7:09 p.m. Morgan arrested the teen on two felony counts of domestic violence assault and a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief. The boy was also charged with a civil violation of possession of tobacco products by a minor, the sheriff said.

The Juvenile Community Corrections officer was contacted, and the boy was taken to Long Creek Youth Development Center in South Portland.

The case will be handled in Juvenile Court, Nichols said.
