WBBH-TV says a fight over crayons led to felony charges against an 8-year-old boy in Fort Myers, Fla. The second-grader was charged with aggravated battery after a teacher told police that he hit some of his classmates and then punched his teacher during a violent outburst at Royal Palm Exceptional School.
He is 8 ..if that charge goes through which it shouldn't his life is ruined. Well up until his record is expunged but I dont know if they would do that for an assault and battery charge.--bermudianguy
In Florida? What a #ing surprise. I am 44, when I was in grade school, we got in fights on the playground everyday. The teachers would pull us apart, make us shake hands and that was the end of it.

A friend who happened to be at the store kept the snake off her neck and body while police were called. And when Sgt. Ryan Nelson rushed into the store, he was ready to kill the snake with his knife.
But Rossiter asked him to spare the expensive python, so Nelson put on gloves and pried open the snake's mouth to free Rossiter's hand.
Two responders from the Eugene Fire Department helped unwrap the snake, which was eventually returned to its cage.
Rossiter called Nelson a hero.
"He was the bravest guy ever. He went way above and beyond the call of duty," she told The Oregonian.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The cop who shot and killed a gunman on a rampage in a Columbus, Ohio, nightclub Wednesday night was being hailed on Thursday as a hero.
"We were fortunate that we had an officer that was very close that more than likely prevented numerous deaths inside," Sgt. Brent Mull of the Columbus Police Department (search) said of Officer James D. Niggemeyer.
"I think the community has a hero here."
"The officer was able to strategically gun this guy down before he was able to kill his hostage," Mull told reporters. "It appeared that he was about to kill this hostage when the officer basically put an end to it.
"Again, I can't say enough [about] his abilities, his skills."
