Family Shocked to Learn 6yo Girl Arrested, Cuffed, Booked into Jail for “Tantrum” at School
By Matt Agorist
Orlando, FL — In the land of the free, throwing a temper tantrum is now a crime, even for 6-year-old little girls. A Florida grandmother learned that the hard way this week after her granddaughter was arrested for doing that very thing at school.
Meralyn Kirkland explained to WKMG that her granddaughter had been arrested at Lucious and Emma Nixon Elementary charter school by Orlando Police Officers.
“What do you mean she was arrested, he said ‘there was an incident and she kicked somebody and she is being charged and she is on her way,’” Kirkland explained.
