Kids, they love candy. A lot. But generally their quest for a sugar rush doesn’t lead them to get arrested. That is, if you aren’t a certain 9-year-old girl from Fort Myers, Florida. On Halloween (aka National Sugar High Day) this fourth-grader from the Royal Palm School threw an epic tantrum while heading home on the school bus. The driver of the bus — according to The Smoking Gun — asked the student to stop eating candy on the bus. The girl? She got upset. Really upset. Then chaos ensued.
She — reportedly — starting yelling obscenities at the driver, threatened to hit other students on the bus, spit at the driver and then jumped off the bus. But that’s not it. Apparently she also started to throw pieces of asphalt at the bus. Then the cops came to the scene, and things got even crazier.
The 9-year-old didn’t calm down in the face of authority. Instead she started yelling at the cops, saying, “F*ck you! F*ck you!” She added, “Shut the fu*k up. I will fu*kin kill you.” She then picked up a piece of aluminum patio furniture that was nearby and threw it at the police officer. The cop got a handle on the out-of-control elementary school student but then she tried to bite him and again said she would kill him. Yeah, someone needs a time out.
But for now she is being “charged with battery on a public school employee, resisting arrest with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and throwing a deadly missile into an occupied vehicle.” She was released to her parents and is being placed on 21 days of home detention.
Is this a good argument for throwing out all your kids Halloween candy?
