“A mother watched with horror as deputies in Florida arrested her 10-year-old son with autism at school last week for an incident she said took place last year.
Luanne Haygood filmed her son’s April 12 arrest on her cell phone, capturing him crying out in confusion as Okeechobee County Sheriff deputies handcuffed him and led him to a sheriff’s vehicle.
“I don’t know what’s going on, mama!” the little boy shouted as his mom tried to get answers from the deputies.
“He has autism. He doesn’t know what’s going on,” Haygood is heard telling the deputies.
Haygood, who spoke with CBS 12 News, said her son spent the night behind bars.
According to her, deputies arrested the child after a school resource officer identified him as having an outstanding warrant for assault ― something that Haygood is heard saying in the video that they weren’t aware of.”
