5-Yr Old Handcuffed and Charged with Battery of a Police Officer?!!!
Little Michael Davis has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which his mother says has caused him to get into fights at school. "Michael is energetic," his mother said. "A big ball of energy."
The school decided to alter Michael's behavior by having him meet with the school security officer.
"He would come out and talk to Michael and the kids are normally scared straight," said one of the teachers at the school.
Michael had other plans. Some are saying that Michael attacked the school officer and refused to obey his orders. That's what led to his arrest. Lt. Frank Gordo says he placed his hand on Michael's hand and "the boy pushed my hand away in a batting motion, pushed papers off the table and kicked me in the right knee."
Without notifying the boy's parents, the officer filed charges against Michael for battering a police officer.
"I didn't know until two or three weeks later that my son was zip tied," his mother said.
Michael's mother has been asking the school to get her son the help he needs and the education he deserves. Several protocols were violated in their treatment of Michael and the case may have legal ramifications.
