(Meredith) - Newly released bodycam video shows a 6-year-old girl begging for help as a police officer arrests her at a Florida school.
The family of Kaia Rolle released the footage to the public late Monday. It shows the first-grader breaking down in tears while the officer restrains her with zip ties on Sept. 19 at Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy Charter School in Orlando.
“Help me, help me, please!” the girl screams.
Officer Dennis Turner arrested Kaia after she reportedly had a temper tantrum at school and "battered three staff members by kicking and punching them," according to an arrest report.
As Turner escorts her outside, the girl wails, "Please let me go," and "I don't want to go in the police car."
Turner, who detained another 6-year-old that same week, was later fired for arresting children younger than 12 without a supervisor's approval.
The 6-year-old girl shown in the bodycam video was charged with misdemeanor battery -- but prosecutors dropped that charge the following day, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
The child's grandmother, Meralyn Kirkland, previously told CNN that Kaia had sleep apnea, which could her cause her to act out in school. Kirkland said the family repeatedly worked with school officials to manage Kaia's condition.
Though charges were never pursued, Kaia's mugshot and fingerprints were still taken at a juvenile assessment center, Kirkland said.
The 6-year-old has since re-enrolled in a private school.
