Officer fired after girl, 6, arrested at school after temper tantrum, grandmother says

Published

 – A Florida school resource officer has been fired while Orlando police investigate why he arrested two children younger than 10.

 

The officer, who was initially suspended, was later terminated, according to Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon.

WFTV spoke to one of the children’s grandmothers who said her 6-year-old granddaughter was arrested after she had a temper tantrum.

Meralyn Kirkland said her granddaughter was arrested because she reportedly kicked a staff member during a temper tantrum.

Kirkland said the school knows her granddaughter can be prone to temper tantrums because she suffers from sleep apnea.

Kirkland said she rushed to the Juvenile Assessment Center when she found out her granddaughter had been arrested for battery.

“I asked them for her, and they told me she was currently in process of being fingerprinted. And I think when they said fingerprinted is when it hit home to me. And I’m, like, fingerprinted? And they said yes, and they escorted me into an office and on the desk in that officer were two mugshot pictures of my 6-year-old granddaughter,” Kirkland said over the phone.

Orlando police said it stopped the Juvenile Assessment Center from fully processing the 6-year-old once it found out the school resource officer did not get his supervisor’s approval before arresting her.

Orlando Police Department policy states a supervisor must approve the arrest of anyone younger than 12 years old.

Kirkland wants to make sure her granddaughter was not fully processed because she has paperwork that said her granddaughter has a court appearance for the battery charge next month.

It is unclear what happened in the case of the 8-year-old student who was also arrested at the school on the same day.

The rapper/actor is being held in the Cheatham County Jail without bond, WTVF reported. His court date is set for May, the television station reported.

Woman accused of trying to light boyfriend on fire after he failed to celebrate her new job

AVONDALE, Ariz. – Authorities arrested an Arizona woman last week on suspicion of trying to set her live-in boyfriend on fire after he failed to celebrate news that she got a job at a Subway restaurant, according to multiple reports.
Police on Dec. 11 arrested Kathy Elizabeth Jones, 45, at the couple’s home in Avondale to face charges of aggravated assault and criminal damage, according to KPNX and KSAZ-TV.
In court records obtained by KSAZ-TV, police said Jones sprayed lighter fluid on her boyfriend and threw lit matches at him while she was angry because he wouldn’t celebrate with her. She told police that before the incident, she had two Smirnoff Ice drinks and two “strong” mixed drinks that contained rum, KPNX reported.
Jones’ boyfriend, Jason Davis, told KPHO he wasn’t burned during the incident. He locked Jones out of their home as he waited for police to arrive, according to KPNX. While she was outside, Jones damaged the front door frame by slamming it hard, KSAZ-TV reported.
In a police report obtained by KPHO, authorities said Jones told officers she remembered becoming upset with Davis but that she “does not remember anything else about the evening and does not know how she ended up locked out of the residence.”
Jones’ son, identified only as Cody, told KPHO the incident was out of-character for his mother.
“My mom has never, ever done anything like this,” Cody said, according to KPHO. “This is the first thing I’ve ever heard of my mom doing something extreme like this. My mom’s never been an aggressive person.”
The news station reported Jones and Davis have been dating for the past six years. Court records obtained by KSAZ-TV showed Jones has lived in the home where she was arrested for a month.
A judge set Jones’ bail at $15,000, according to KPNX. She’s expected to appear Thursday in court for a status conference, KPHO reported.
