Kaia was brought to the station, had her fingerprints recorded and even had a mugshot taken, State Attorney Aramis Ayala later confirmed. No charges were ultimately filed against her.
Turner was fired after the incident. According to Orlando Police Department policy, officers must get approval from a watch commander to arrest anyone under 12 years old.
Orlando police Chief Orlando Rolon apologized after the arrest made headlines. "On behalf of myself and the entire Orlando Police Department, I apologize to the children involved and their families," he said. "As a grandfather of three children less than 11 years old, I can only imagine how traumatic this was for everyone involved."
Kais's grandmother Meralyn Kirkland told WOGX the body cam footage was difficult to watch.
"I wasn't prepared for the emotions viewing that bodycam," she said. "What was most heartwrenching for me, on that clip you can hear and you can see Kaia begging for help. She just broke down completely and she started begging everyone around to help her. Nobody said anything, not even to calm her to say it's going to be ok Kaia."
