According to a police report, an officer who responded to the attack found the teacher sitting on the ground and feeling ‘faint,’ ‘weak and dazed’.

The report then states how she started coughing and dry heaving.

By the time paramedics arrived at the school, the teacher was unresponsive and had to be taken to hospital. 

Fire Rescue personnel brought the teacher out of the classroom on a stretcher in order to take her Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. 

The five-year-old student faces the possibility of being charged with aggravated assault and battery with hands, fists, and feet. 

In Florida, there is no statute specifying any minimum age for arrest, which means there is nothing legally preventing a preschooler, even two-and-a-half years-old, from being arrested. 

Last year, a Florida House panel approved a proposed bill to establish a minimum arrest age of 7-years-old but the bill failed to become law.

22 states have minimum arrest ages ranging from six-years-old in North Carolina to 12-years-old in California and Michigan. 

Most states will not arrest or charge anyone under the age of eight. 

Children between the ages of 10-12 are not usually sent to jail except for rare cases involving major offenses.
