Police arrested a Longwood, Florida, 12-year-old girl for pinching a male classmate’s butt during school hours. Breana Evans has been charged with misdemeanor battery and was temporarily placed in juvenile detention.
Everybody involved in this story—Breana, her father, the cops, her alleged victim—thinks the arrest is an overreaction. Everybody, except the boy’s mom, who alerted police and demanded that they prosecute.
“I regret it because I didn’t know it would lead to this,” Breana told WPTV.com.
Breana claims she didn’t know the boy. She pinched him because that’s just something her friends do. Keep in mind that she is 12.
