Girl, 12, facing battery charges for pinching schoolmate on behind

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —
A 12-year-old girl is facing criminal charges after she was arrested for pinching a schoolmate on the behind.
 
Breana Evans told Channel 9 that it was a joke, but she was suspended from Milwee Middle School and placed in the back of a squad car, taken to the juvenile justice center and fingerprinted.
 
Evans said she was charged with a misdemeanor for battery.
 
“I was by the office and we were just pinching random people, and that's it,” Breana said.
 
Paperwork shows that Breana was suspended because the act was deemed “socially unacceptable.”
 
“I can see her being suspended from school, I understand that, but as far as them coming to arrest her the next day, no, that's not the American way,” Breana’s father, Ray Evans, said.
 
Ray Evans said the arrest was “extreme” and “crazy.”
 
Deputies said there isn’t a history between Breana and the student she pinched, but officials' hands are tied because the mother of the boy wanted to press charges, even though the boy didn’t want to.
 
“I don't get why it's such a big deal. I just pinched the boy's butt. I didn't like hurt him or anything,” Breana said.
 
The boy’s mother could not be reached for comment.

Deputies consulted with the State Attorney’s Office, and now Breana will take classes and do community service as part of a 90-day diversion program to have the charge removed from her record upon completion.

Well, it's more along the lines of sexual harassment... If the genders were reversed no one would be upset about the arrest. But it seems quite extreme.

Suspended, yes. Arrested? Too much.

I disagree with you. There is nothing ok with arresting a child for pinching a school mates butt. Zero tolerance has gone way to far.

The kid sees nothing wrong with assaulting random people just because it was a pinch?  Wow.  I hope those classes include one on sexual harassment awareness.

yeah thats extreme. Things happen. Kids are kids. I could see the mom having a talk with the little girl's dad because she is definitely old enough to know better, but at 12 unless its a repeated offense over and over and over, I don't think the cops need to be involved.

Pressing charges and having her arrested is ridiculous. A detention would be enough. I wouldn't press charges no matter of it was a boy pinching a girl or a girl pinching a boy.

Sexual harassment and assault are not ok. I think the girl would have learned her lesson with a simple suspension. The mother of the boy should have listened to him and not pressed charges. Unless the boy came home with visible bruises or marks the That's way over the line.
