A 10-year-old boy was left in tears when he was told that he would be accused of mistreatment by the family of a white child who was hit in the head during a game of dodgeball in Michigan.
Bryce Lindley played dodgeball with Ruth Eriksson Elementary, in Canton, on April 29, when he allegedly hit his classmate in the face with the ball.
According to W X Y Z, the child suffered a concussion. Bryce's mother, Cameishi Lindley, never thought that her son would be accused of serious abuse.
But on July 24, Cameishi received a phone call from the Juvenile Court of Wayne County about her son.

The child suffered a concussion. However, Bryce & # 39; s mother, Cameishi Lindley (left, near Bryce) never thought her son would be accused of severe abuse. But on July 24, Cameishi received a phone call from the Juvenile Court of Wayne County about her son
According to a police report, the student's mother has filed a complaint against Bryce because her son has a medical condition.
The mother, unidentified, accused Bryce of deliberately throwing the ball at her son's face.
& # 39; He got facial problems in his face. He had a black eye and a bruised nose, & # 39; the boy's mother told WXYZ.
At the time, Bryce was suspended from school for one day and his mother believes that that was enough punishment.
& # 39; This is a child who was playing with his friends on the playground, & # 39; said Cameishi.
But the other child's mother said it wasn't the first time her son was hurt.
She told the station that he is often the target.
& # 39; My son was hit twice in the face with a ball. The child apologized to my son and my son said, & # 39; mom it's good that we're still becoming friends & # 39 ;.
However, Cameishi said she is & # 39; not aware & # 39; was from other incidents.
Cameishi also wondered why the boy could play dodgeball if her son has a serious medical condition.

The incident took place at the Ruth Eriksson Elementary School on April 29. The boy's mother said this was not the first time her son was being targeted at the school. The Bryce pre-trail conference is scheduled for August 1 in the juvenile court
A pre-trail conference is planned for 1 August in the juvenile court.
In the meantime, Cameishi shared one fundraising page to pay her son's $ 4,000 legal fees.
The fundraiser has collected more than $ 11,000 in donations.
Bryce & # 39; s story has caught the attention of various activists who believe he & # 39; racially focused & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; About 10-year-olds played dodgeball at the school playground. A white child was hit with the ball. Then they accused the 10-year-old black child of assault, & tweet Tariq Nasheed.
"That is why we should not give priority to these border issues, while our children are racist," he added.
Another person tweeted: & # 39; There is a 10-year-old black boy, Bryce, in America who was struck by a heavy attack through Dodgeball.
& # 39; All because the white boy's mother, who was aware of his illness, had not indicated to the school that her child should not be involved in that kind of sport. & # 39;
Actor D.L. Hughley also shared the story on his Instagram: & # 39; RIDICULOUS !! These are CHILDREN THAT ARE CHILDREN !! They accused a child ?? If the child has a medical condition … WHY PARTICIPATE IN ANYTHING HE CAN GET? & # 39;
