    Fla. Deputy Pepper Sprays 12-Year-Old Jaywalker

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A deputy used pepper spray on a 12-year-old girl and wrestled her to the ground when she ignored repeated orders to stop jaywalking, the sheriff's office said Friday.
    Broward County sheriff's deputy Michael Roberto was issuing jaywalking tickets to students crossing a busy highway Thursday when he asked the girl to stand next to his motorcycle so he could give her a citation, the deputy's report said.

    But the girl, who was not immediately identified, became upset and began to curse, Roberto said in the report. The girl also walked away and ignored four more orders to stop and put her hands behind her back, he said.

    The girl, who is 5 feet 1 inch and 134 pounds, threatened to hit Roberto and rolled her hand in a fist, the report said. The deputy repeatedly warned her that he would use pepper spray if she didn't listen.

    "After the last warning and order, it became apparent that I had to choose between a physical fight and using the pepper spray," Roberto wrote. "I sprayed her in the face."

    The girl then knocked the spray can out of Roberto's hand, so the deputy wrestled the girl to the ground and handcuffed her, the report said. The girl, who was not injured, was charged with failure to use a crosswalk and resisting arrest without violence, both misdemeanors. She was released to her mother.

    The girl likely won't face any jail time on the charges, sheriff's spokesman Jim Leljedahl said.

    Leljedahl said there is no age policy for the use of pepper spray. The police report and witness accounts suggest Roberto acted within the sheriff's office's rules, Leljedahl said.

    "Pepper spray is an appropriate response when we meet with defensive resistance," Leljedahl said Friday. "In this case, she was belligerent and aggressive, even."

    The sheriff's office was reviewing the arrest, though most pepper spray incidents are not investigated, Leljedahl said. A formal investigation would be launched if the girl's family files a complaint, he said.

    Deputies seeking to stop accidents along busy Federal Highway have been ticketing Olsen Middle School students for the past several weeks.

    Roberto, a 22-year veteran of the force, was at work Friday, Leljedahl said.

    Do you suppose she'll ever threaten to hit a cop again? Doubt it.

    That's really fucked up. Regardless of whatever the girl did to provoke him, he was a grown man, she was a 12 year old girl.

    Pretty sad/disturbing/repulsive/ when an officer can't handle himself with children. Good thing it wasn't a 14 year old male, he might have had to shoot him, then.

    "22-year veteran". how can a 22 year old be a veteran in the first place? at least you admitted you were wrong. that's one step in the right direction. that deserves a golf clap.

    good thing it wasn't an 11 year old black male. the officer would obviously have had to physically subdue the 'aggressor' and shoot him when the sunglasses he was carrying suddenly looked like a .45

    Have you forgotten about the election back in 2000? Or maybe the refugees we hear about on the news all the time? Or maybe the fact that this really popular video game called "Vice City" is based in Florida?

    Everyone knows about America's penis.
