An Akron mother was arrested after police say she became belligerent with officers following the arrest of her son.
Sarina Lawrence, 40, is charged with obstructing justice and misconduct at an emergency. She was being held in the Summit County Jail.
Also at the jail is her son, 19-year-old Ragheem Carr.
Carr and two teens, ages 16 and 13, are accused of the armed robbery of a man that took place at a bus stop near Lovers Lane and Inman Street about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. The man was robbed of $30, a silver chain, his iPhone and three bus passes, police said.
Akron police officers responding to the area arrested Carr and the 13-year-old. The other teen was identified, but has not been taken into custody.
Police say Carr was being held in a police cruiser when his mother tried to approach the vehicle. Officers ordered her away, prompting the mother to continue yelling at police and tell her son, “Don’t you talk to the [expletive] cops,” police said.
