FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors will drop charges against a
girl who was arrested for lashing out her teachers in Fort Myers.

The 9-year-old had faced two counts of felony battery against her Royal Palm Exceptional School teachers.

Last month, school officials told authorities the child spat at her instructors and kicked at an officer.

The girl's mother says her daughter has schizophrenia.

Tarina Williams says her daughter is back in school with a new teacher.
