Mood swings and tantrums. We’re familiar with them (we do see Dr. Cranfill every day, after all).

But this particular kindergartener may think twice next time she wants to throw a tantrum. Or shelves, or books… or other students.

Because for this little rascal, kicking and screaming equaled being handcuffed and taken to jail, holding cell and all.

According to MSNBC, the 6-year-old freaked out at school, apparently throwing shelves, biting doorknobs… you know, causing general chaos. And since biting doorknobs is obviously jail-worthy, she was handcuffed and taken to the slammer.

Now back in the day, we’d just get a beating by the principal (we hear they can’t do that now. Shame.) But arresting a kid for a temper tantrum is new to us.

It really got us thinking…. can we just do that with every cranky little kid we come across?

The baby throwing a fit on an airplane — JAIL!

The kid screaming bloody murder at a nice restaurant — JAIL!

Eh. Too much effort.

The kindergarten girl’s parents were pretty ticked off, to say the least. Say’s the girl’s mom, ”She has mood swings some days, which all of us have mood swings some days… I guess that was just one of her bad days.”

But hey, at least the cops gave her a Coke while she was in her holding cell. That’s way nicer than they treated us.
