Newly released body cam footage shows Orlando police officer, Dennis Turner, arrested two 6-year-olds in a one-week period in September, among them the girl in the video. He was fired within days of the arrest of the girl shown on the body-camera video.

In the police report from the incident, authorities say Turner was responding to a report that the 6-year-old “battered three staff members by kicking and punching them” at her school, the Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy in Orlando.

The child’s grandmother has previously told local press in Florida that her granddaughter suffers from a sleep disorder the family was working to resolve, which was why she was experiencing some behavioral issues.

The girl was charged with battery, but those charges were not pursued, according to NBC Orlando-affiliate WESH.
