If memory serves me he was coming forward towards the front and out of control of himself. A reasonable action from you is to stop him reaching the front in his angry out of control state the result may have been he interfered with the control of the vehicle. A crash.
We keep a running record af all contact and what is said. Those that have drug issues are always a problem as are those that have been abused who will claim abuse at every chance they get. I write what has transpired at an interview and read it back to them before making the notes official. Noting I have read it to them. It heads them off at the pass so to speak.
I was also the court prosecuter for the service for several years and in a small town they think twice before taking me on.
As for this kid, he has done this before, and his claim is his comfort blanket. A learned
behavour, which has in the past got him out of the spot light.
Even though young he is savvy. I would suspect he is a victim of sexual abuse and drug or solvent use.
