10-Year Old Handcuffed At East Salisbury School, Mother Outraged

 SALISBURY, Md.- The mother of an East Salisbury Elementary School student says her daughter was handcuffed in school for an incident that happened three days earlier on a school bus.

Tyshena Williams said her 10-year old daughter, Emonie, did get into a fight on the school bus on Tuesday of last week, but that she was never told about the incident. She told WBOC that she got a call several days after the fight that her daughter was now in the principal's office, and and when she arrived, Emonie was being held in the office in handcuffs.

"So I jet over to the school when I had gotten met by the police and they tell me that she was in an altercation, they pulled her out of class, they handcuffed her, they questioned her.  And I was just like, well what was the need to handcuff her if the altercation happened on Tuesday, why Friday is then she being handcuffed?" said Williams.  

Williams doesn't understand why her daughter was handcuffed and questioned without her mother present. "I was outraged.  I just felt like she is a minor and she is entitled to have her mother.  I just hate to feel like my daughter was looking for her mother, and I wasn't there," said the Salisbury mother. 

Williams added about the incident, "Because they couldn't get a hold of me and they were having a hard time, they told my daughter if, if your mother doesn't come then you are going to jail.  They also told her, well if I kick you, what are you going to do to me?  They also told her, don't you think you should write the other little girl an apology letter.  All without getting her side of the story."

When contacted by WBOC, a spokesperson with the Wicomico County School District said they cannot discuss details of the incident because of student confidentiality, but did say district officials will be meeting in the near future to review and evaluate what occurred.
