A 12-year-old New York schoolgirl who was arrested and handcuffed for doodling on her classroom desk  is suing police for one million dollars, a report said.
Lawyers for Alexa Gonzalez claim police used excessive force and violated her rights in the February incident at Junior High School 190 in the Queens neighborhood.
Gonzalez’s mother, Moraima Camacho, told the Daily News that the schoolgirl merely scribbled “I love my friends Abby and Faith” — in washable green ink  — when teachers pounced on her and dragged her to the dean’s office.
Police were called and officers cuffed and arrested the pre-teen. At the police station she was handcuffed to a pole for more than two hours, according to the lawsuit against the police and education departments.
