Preteen Facing Felony Charges Over Incident on School Bus

MIAMI – A 9-year-old Florida girl has been charged with several felonies after jumping off a school bus, hurling chunks of asphalt at the vehicle and violently resisting arrest, the Lee County Sheriff’s office said.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a telephone call on Monday in which they were informed that the girl, a student at Royal Palm Exceptional Center, had jumped off the bus in Fort Myers, in southwestern Florida, after spitting at staff on the vehicle.

Once she was off the bus, the student began to gather large chunks of broken roadway asphalt and throw them at the bus. One of the chunks hit the driver’s windshield, according to the report, which added that the girl fled when she saw the deputies arriving.

While she was fleeing, the girl, identified as Amber Harris, threw a metal chair she found in a yard at one deputy and repeatedly hit him when he tried to immobilize her.

The girl, who was later released and will be brought to trial next month, was charged with battery on a public school employee, “throwing a deadly missile into an occupied vehicle” and resisting arrest with violence. EFE
