Jan 29, 2018, WFTV, Orlando: School: Child who punched teacher was restrained once before http://www.wftv.com/news/florida/school-child-who-punched-teacher-was-restrained-once-before/691261953 School district officials in Florida said they followed standard protocol last week when a 7-year-old boy was placed in handcuffs and removed from his school - and they say it was the second time since the school year began that the first-grader had to be restrained following aggressive behavior. The latest episode occurred Thursday, when a teacher at the Coral Way K-8 Center in Miami told the boy to stop playing with his food in the cafeteria. When the child refused to stop, he was taken from the cafeteria, according to an incident report from Miami-Dade County Public Schools police officer Munick Soriano. The report said the boy hit the teacher repeatedly in the back when they were in a hallway outside the cafeteria. The child continued punching and kicking the teacher until they both fell on the ground, according to the report, which also said he grabbed her hair.
