10 Year Old Boy With Autism Arrested at Florida School

ABC News Video title: Uproar over arrest of 10-year-old boy with autism


John Haygood, a 10 year old autistic student at Okeechobee Achievement Academy in Okeechobee, Florida, was arrested at the school last for felony battery against a paraprofessional in an October incident, allegedly punching and kicking his paraprofessional, which left scratches and marks, according to an incident report from the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred after John was being disruptive in class, throwing paper balls around the classroom and hitting other students, the report said. His paraprofessional asked him to go to time out. When John refused, the paraprofessional attempted to remove him, and that’s when John attacked, the report said.
