A 12-year-old Florida Keys student was arrested on a felony aggravated battery charge after school staff say he pushed a counselor so hard she fell head-first into a wall. The Plantation Key School student was removed from class for disruptive behavior and placed in a conference room with two counselors who were trying to calm him down Monday morning before he attacked one of them, according to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
