PPO modified for boy who kicked classmate in the head

Playground fight tweet

GRANDVILLE, MICH. - A Kent County judge says a sixth grader who allegedly kicked a classmate until he was unconscious, can return to school at the Century Park Learning Center in Grandville.

Wednesday the judge modified a personal protection order that prohibited the kicker from contact with Boston Haverkate.

His parents say 11-year-old Boston was kicked in the head at least three times during an altercation during recess at the school on October 17, 2017.  

The boy who kicked him was suspended for two days.  Boston was out of school for two weeks recovering from a concussion.

His parents say it was the second time this year he was attacked by the same boy.

They secured a personal protection order on November 2, 2017 to keep him away from Boston.  It meant the boy who kicked him could not be in the same building including Century Park Learning Center.

 After a hearing Wednesday 17th Circuit Court Judge T.J. Ackert modified the personal protection order.  

The boy who kicked Boston may now go to school at Century Park Learning Center.  The judge says the two boys may be in sight of each other, but the boy who kicked him may not “follow” Boston.

All other terms of the PPO remain in effect.
