Cops: 11-Year-Old Lights Special Needs Student On Fire With Old Spice Spray

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — An 11-year-old boy was taken into custody after lighting a special needs student on fire using Old Spice body spray.

The incident took place at Gulf Middle School in New Port Richey on Feb. 3.

According to a New Port Richey police report, the 11-year-old cornered the student in a bathroom stall. He then lit the Old Spice spray stream on fire as the student was trapped inside the stall.

The student’s pants briefly caught on fire. The student didn’t suffer any serious burn wounds but the hair on his arm was singed.

The victim’s mother told WTSP-TV that her son was “very upset” about what happened.

“You expect your child to go to school and be safe, you know, and they’re not,” Michelle Craig told WTSP. “You don’t know whether your kid is going to come home or what.”

The boy was taken into custody and charged with aggravated battery.
