Video Emerges Of Boy With ADHD, 8, Handcuffed At School; Officer Facing Lawsuit. Kentucky sheriff's deputy is facing charges in a federal lawsuit for handcuffing two young children with disabilities after the students were sent to the principal's office for misbehaving. In a video featuring one of the children, Kenton County Sheriff's Deputy Kevin Sumner pulls the arms of an 8-year-old boy behind his back and places handcuffs above his elbows. The third-grade boy, who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and a history of trauma, had been sent to the school office last fall after experiencing "disability-related difficulties" and failing to obey his teacher, according to the lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Children's Law Center on behalf of the parents of the two children.
