Boy, 8, Arrested for Throwing a Tantrum An 8-year-old boy was arrested and hauled away in hand cuffs on Tuesday for allegedly throwing a violent tantrum at his elementary school in Williamsburg, Va. The Associated Press reports that police arrested the child after he allegedly had a violent outburst that included head-butting his teacher and kicking an assistant principal after he was told he couldn't go outside to play with the other students. He also allegedly tossed chairs and overturned a desk. The boy, who is 4-feet tall, was led away from Rawls Byrd Elementary School in handcuffs and charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. "It's not something that happens every day," Maj. Stan Stout told AP, noting it could be the department's youngest arrest ever. The child was later released to his parents.
