LONGWOOD, Fla. - (WKMG/CNN) A 12-year-old Florida girl is facing charges after she pinched a boy's butt at school.

"I regret it because I didn't know it would lead to this," said Breana Evans, who is charged with misdemeanor battery.


Breana was read her Miranda rights, put in the back of a patrol car, and booked into juvenile detention -- mugshot and all.

"I feel like it's just stupid, just a stupid charge that shouldn't have to happen," said Breana.

"Lord, Lord Lordy what has this world come to. Kids can't even be a kid," said father Ray Evans.

Her father believes it's an overreaction by the mother of the boy who wanted to press charges. 

The pinching itself happened two weeks ago between classes, according to a report.

Evans said she didn't know the boy, and that it's a game students often do.

"It's just a joke," said Breana.

The boy, back then according to the report, told the school resource deputy he didn't want to press charges and Breana was simply suspended

But last week the boy's mother got involved, calling deputies saying that this was battery and she wanted to prosecute. That's when Breana was officially charged.

"That's what the deputy told me. He said, 'I don't even want to do this.' That's what the deputy said, 'But I have to do what I have to do,'" said Ray Evans.

WKMG-TV tried calling the boy's mom to get her side of the story but their call hasn't been returned.

"I'm sorry. That's all I can say for you, lady, is you need some help I think, too overprotective," said Ray Evans.

"I'm sorry for touching your kid," said Breana.
 
According to the Seminole County state attorney, if Breana completes the diversion program, does the community service, the classes and passes all of the drug tests, then the charge will be dismissed and her record would be clean.
