A Bradenton police officer climbed a tree at an elementary school to retrieve a distraught first-grader.

The student climbed the tree at Ballard Elementary on Tuesday because he was upset about being disciplined, according to police.

Police said the boy climbed the tree after running out of the school.

After being brought down, the child was turned over to his mother, police said.
