‘Kid can't even be a kid’: 12yo girl charged for pinching classmate’s butt
Breana Evans claims she was just playing a game when she squeezed the unnamed boy’s heiny.
"It's just a joke," she told CNN.
The police weren’t kidding, though, when they read Breana her Miranda rights, put her into the back of the patrol car, took a mugshot, and booked the middle schooler into juvenile detention.
“He said, 'I don't even want to do this.' That's what the deputy said. 'But I have to do what I have to do’," Ray Evans, Breana’s father, told CNN.
The father’s feelings were seemingly shared by the boy, who told his school resource deputy that he was not interested in pressing charges. Breana, who reportedly did not even know the boy, was suspended by the school. That apparently did not satisfy the boy’s mother.
"I'm sorry. That's all I can say for you, lady, is you need some help I think, too overprotective,” Ray Evans said in the interview.
Breana was more contrite. “I'm sorry for touching your kid,” she said.
If Breana completes a 90-day diversion program, passes drug tests, and performs community service, then the battery charge will be dismissed without going on her permanent record.
