MiamiHerald / A 12-year-old Florida Keys student was arrested on a felony aggravated battery charge after school staff say he pushed a counselor so hard she fell head-first into a wall.
The Plantation Key School student was removed from class for disruptive behavior and placed in a conference room with two counselors who were trying to calm him down Monday morning before he attacked one of them, according to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
Plantation Key School principal Lisa Taylor was not immediately available for comment on the incident Tuesday morning. The Monroe County School District released the following statement:
“District officials are working with school administrators and local law enforcement to further assess and investigate the incident. District officials do not plan to release any further information until the investigation is complete.”
