Cox said officials at the school and the school district wouldn’t comment on the event.“Regretfully we can’t talk about specific incidents with children,” Cox said.The boy’s mother said her son wasn’t wearing shoes or a coat, so she was getting him ready to go back to the school when Leavenworth and the assistant principal arrived.“He ran to the bathroom and locked himself in,” she said. “Then he came out and was sitting in the principal’s lap. Chief Watkins walked in the door, came up to him and told him to straighten up. Of course he was being resistant because he didn’t know what was going to happen to him.”According to the boy’s mother, Watkins took the boy out of the home onto the “wet sidewalk” before putting the boy in handcuffs.“Watkins was literally yelling at him, ‘Is this the life you want?\’” the boy’s mother said.
