A 6-year-old special education student who kicked a Naples teacher's aide and spent several hous in juvenile jail is facing felony battery charges. ...
Takovia Allen suffers from behavioral problems and attends a special class at Lely Elementary in Naples.
According to an arrest report, on May 2, a teacher was trying to line up students to go to music class. Takovia refused to go and kicked the teacher's aide in the ankle.
After a discussion among school officials and two law enforcement officials called to the school, the girl was arrested.
Takovia was taken to juvenile jail and held there for several hours before being released to her mother.
She is being charged with battery on a public education employee.
It's possible she will enter a program that includes counseling. If she completes the program successfully the charges could be dropped.
I suggest the school officials and cops who made the decision to arrest the six-year-old be required to enter counseling.
