8-Year-Old Arrested After Alleged Trantrum
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Police arrested an 8-year-old boy who allegedly had a violent outburst in school, head-butting his teacher and kicking an assistant principal, when he was told he couldn't go outside to play with other students.

The 4-foot pupil was led away from Rawls Byrd Elementary School in handcuffs Tuesday and charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery.

``It's not something that happens every day,'' Maj. Stan Stout said of what could be the department's youngest arrest ever.

5. Couldn't they just call the parents?
He was released to them later- maybe they were called earlier, but the article doesn't say.
