Florida middle school student arrested for kneeing a SRO in the groin: officials
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - A 13-year-old student was arrested for battery on a school resource deputy Friday.
The incident happened at Greenwood Lakes Middle School in Lake Mary.
Officials say the deputy responded after he was called by the Dean about a student who was uncontrollable. The deputy initially attempted to speak with the student to gain control and figure out what was wrong.
The student resisted, walking into and bumping into the deputy. The deputy redirected him, but the student again hit him with his shoulder and when he again directed away from the deputy he swung his right hand back to the deputy's chest.
