Keiontae Lajuan Bennett, 18, has been charged with aggravated burglary after several officers had to struggle with him to get him handcuffed.

Two juvenile brothers were also charged in connection with a break-in at a house on Bradington Drive.

A neighbor said he saw two of the black males go to the side of the house and one stay on the porch. He said the front door opened and the one on the porch went inside. Then all three came out of the front.

Police arrived on the scene while the trio was still there and chased them down.

Officers found a black and white backpack belonging to one of the brothers that contained a Playstation 3 and some games. The homeowner arrived and identified the Playstation 3 and games as hers.

The juveniles refused to talk except to say they were at the house to visit a friend.

Bennett spoke briefly, then he asked for an attorney. When told he was going to be charged, he said, "You're not charging me with s---"

Police said Bennett became very loud as he resisted and other officers in a squad room had to help get him under control. He had to be taken to the floor.

Officers said after he was handcuffed, he made threats. Officers said they took the threats seriously because in the short time he spoke he said his Facebook name is Taecutty, which police said means he is associated with the Cutthroat gang, which is associated with the Rolling 60s.
