Police hauled an 8-year-old boy out of class earlier this week and served him with a restraining order, meaning he can’t even go to school.
According to KMOV, Peyton Whitehead’s mother claims Jefferson County police said her son cannot leave his house until the matter is resolved.
In fact, the young boy, who is currently enrolled in the third grade at Hillsboro Elementary, was allegedly threatened with arrest if he so much as walks outside his front door.
The order of protection bans Peyton from walking within 1,000 feet of the children who live in a house on his block.
According to KMOV, the father who filed the restraining order, the Whiteheads’ neighbor, has accused Peyton of making serious threats against his children.
The children’s parents all admit that they’ve been feuding quite a bit in the last few months.
Thanks to the restraining order, Peyton, who reportedly has a learning disability, is not allowed to go back to school until after his court hearing on September 20.
In the meantime, Peyton’s mother has been forced to home-school him.
If Peyton does violate the restraining order, police will be forced to arrest him and take him to a juvenile detention facility.
