Yajira Quezada, 11-Year-Old, Handcuffed For Being Rude (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

When Yajira Quezada copped an attitude, police put her in cuffs.

An Adams County, Colo. Sheriff's Office incident report obtained by KUSA says the Shaw Heights Middle School 11-year-old was handcuffed and taken to a holding facility because she was, "argumentative and extremely rude" to an assistant principal.

"Why would they handcuff me?" Quezada asked KUSA. "I'm not the type of girl to get arrested."

The Sheriff's office said it was just following normal procedure.

The story is reminiscent of Newscore's report on an Indiana middle school girl who was literally handcuffed over spilled milk.

And just last week, a parent in North Carolina claimed her autistic son was restrained via handcuffs at a New Hanover County school, according to WECT.
