At 9:12 p.m., officers saw the boy arguing with a bouncer in the 100 block of East Chicago, police said. When they walked up to him, the boy threw the liquid substance in the face of one of the officers and ran off.

He was later taken into custody a block east of where the incident occurred, police said.
