A 12-year-old Florida girl was arrested and faces misdemeanor battery charges after pinching a classmate's butt. Breana Evans said that pinching a classmate's butt and watching their reaction was a game she often played with her friends, but did not realize its severity.
"I regret it. I didn't know it'll lead to this," Evans said in an interview.
The incident happened two weeks ago at Milwee Middle School. According to WKMG, the boy did not want to press charges, but his mother later decided to do so.
Evans was suspended by the school as punishment. She did not know the boy.
Ray Evans, the girl's father, said he thought the boy's parents were being "overprotective".
"Lordy. What's this world come to?" he aked. "Kids can't even be kids."
He said the deputy who came to arrest his daughter said, "I don't even want to do this, but I have to do what I have to do."
The girl faces misdemeanor battery charges.
