Two of three teens riding on the back of a car near the Lacy Lakeview Police Station Monday night were hurt after falling off the vehicle.  According to Lacy Lakeview Police Chief John Truehitt, the driver took a corner on Crescent,  sending the boys, age 15 to 17,  tumbling to the pavement. He said one teen hit his head, and as police administered first aid  a crowd began to gather.  Things got more heated when the mother and 15 year old brother of the driver got to the scene and tempers flared with some of the bystanders.  Chief Truehitt said police had to handcuff the mother and use a taser on the brother because he got aggressive with officers. At this time, no charges have been filed. The two teens were sent to Baylor Scott and White Hillcrest for treatment.
