NYPD arrested and interrogated 7-year old boy over lunchroom incident involving $5

The family of a 7-year-old Bronx, New York boy is suing the police and the city for $250 million. Cops handcuffed and interrogated the boy for ten hours after a scuffle over lunch money at school. Over a scuffle? And only FIVE DOLLARS! Here’s how it’s being reported:

Wilson Reyes, a student at Public School 114 in the Bronx reportedly got into a fight with a fellow student in December after he was accused of taking $5 of lunch money that had fallen on the ground in front of him. Responding to a complaint of assault and robbery, the police were called and took the boy to the local police precinct where officers allegedly handcuffed and interrogated him for ten hours, according to the lawsuit.

“Imagine how I felt seeing my son in handcuffs,” Wilson’s mother, Frances Mendez, told the New York Post. “It was horrible. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said.

It turns out that the boy who

was handcuffed has been bullying the other boy who had the $5 stolen from him. It happened off school grounds, and the boy who was handcuffed punched him in the face when he was accused of taking his money, which is assault, hence the handcuffs. How did his mother feel about her child being handcuffed? She felt she could make $250 million off it.
