The third grade girl said the worst thing about the ordeal was getting arrested.

“Talking about how they were going to beat me up and drag me on the street… threw the ball like I was a dog and said fetch,” she said.

“What upsets me most was my eight-year-old daughter was handcuffed and taken to the police station with no adult or lawyer present, she was not read her rights, she is only eight she can’t even understand it,” said Ragland. source

 
The incident happened May 6 after two older children took the girl’s basketball and would not give it back. The anonymous eight year old recalls the incident.

No one was injured and police say they will not file charges.
