The boy, 13, of the 1000 block of Putnam St., was charged with felonious attempted escape and vandalism.

A justice center employee had taken the boy to his weekly physical therapy session on Bone Creek Drive when he allegedly became confrontational. The boy’s guardian met the employee there and asked the boy how he was doing, according to a deputy’s report, but the question only got the child worked up.

He was aggravated because his doctor forbade him to participate in physical activity.

The employee then escorted the boy inside, where he began causing a commotion. He then decided he wanted to leave, as the employee refused to remove his handcuffs unless he settled down, the report said.

The child pulled away from the employee, but was ultimately escorted into a county vehicle. While the employee conferred with the boy’s mother, the boy began kicking at the rear window of the vehicle. His second kick knocked the glass out, the report said.

A Perkins police officer responded to assist the employee, and drove the child back to the justice center.
