In a police report, authorities said police were responding to a report that the 6-year-old had “battered three staff members by kicking and punching them” at her school, the Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy in Orlando.
The officer is heard on camera bragging about the 6-year-old being the youngest person he has arrested, and that his earlier ‘record’ was a 7-year-old child.
One of the child’s grandmother spoke with the media and told them that her 6-year-old granddaughter suffers from a sleep disorder which causes her to experience behavioral issues and that they have been working to resolve them.
“The Orlando Police Department has a policy that addresses the arrest of a minor and our initial finding shows the policy was not followed,” Rolón said. “As a grandparent of three children less than 11 years old this is very concerning to me.”
The 6-year-old child was charged with battery. Those charges were later dropped and the officer was fired.
