SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle teen shown on video shoving a police officer who then punched her in the face has apologized to Officer Ian Walsh on Friday. Police say Walsh accepted the apology.

Separately, the King County prosecutor charged the 17-year-old girl as a juvenile with third-degree assault. That's punishable by a maximum 30 days in detention.

The incident happened Monday as the teen was intervening in a friend's arrest for jaywalking. James Kelley of the Urban League of Seattle told KOMO-TV he requested the meeting between the teen and the officer to help calm the situation.

Police have said the department's civilian-led Office of Professional Accountability is investigating the 39-year-old officer's actions.

Prosecutor Dan Satterberg says, "the law is clear, you can't shove a police officer, period."
