Parent and bullied son kicked out of school

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A sixth-grade student at a Florida middle school has been issued a restraining order to stay away from another student who he is accused of beating badly.

A judge issued the restraining order this week, requiring the student to stay 50 feet away from the other student. The judge found that the student had stalked and bullied the victim again following the beating last month.

A police report says that last month the student picked up the victim by his shoulders, slammed him into the pavement and repeatedly punched him in the head after the victim refused to give him popcorn he was selling for a fundraiser.

The Lakeland Ledger reports that following the judge's decision the student accused of the bullying in Lakeland, Florida was transferred to another school.
