9-Year-Old Florida Girl Arrested for Throwing Fit of Rage on School Bus

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Lee County Sheriff’s deputies say a 9-year-old girl faces multiple felony charges after a fit of rage that began on the school bus.

Officials say the girl jumped off the school bus Monday afternoon after spitting at staff members.

A sheriff’s report says a deputy saw the girl toss large pieces of asphalt at the bus, hitting the windshield next to the driver.

Authorities say the girl walked away when she saw the deputy. She picked up a metal chair in a nearby yard and threw it at the deputy. When he said she was under arrest, the girl resisted by kicking and attempting to push him.

No one was injured.

She is charged with battery on a school employee and a law enforcement office among other charges.
