Southeast Missouri Boy Handcuffed after "Disruptive" Behavior

December 3, 2005 - Posted at 2:56 p.m. CST

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A 10-year-old boy is back with his parents after police handcuffed him when he became combative this week at school.

Cape Girardeau police say they handcuffed the boy for his protection and that of the officer who took him to juvenile detention.

Police say the boy faces juvenile court proceedings for assault, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

Police say the boy became disruptive after lunch on Tuesday, and swore at his principal and began punching him.  When a police officer was called, the boy began threatening and punching him.

Police say they handcuffed the child out of fear he would cause an accident while being transported.

The child's parents were not immediately available for comment.
