ORLANDO -- An Orange County deputy tasered an 11-year-old girl after she punched the deputy in the nose. It happened Thursday at Moss Park Elementary School in Orlando.

Deputies say the girl pushed another student into oncoming traffic. A teacher approached the girl, but she walked away. In homeroom, the girl became violent, yelling and spitting at other teachers, according to reports. A school resource officer was called in to remove the student, who punched her in the face, causing her nose to bleed. The deputy fought back by shocking the girl with her Taser gun.

The sheriff's office says the deputy may have suffered a broken nose.

The girl was taken to a juvenille detention center and faces charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, disrupting a school function, and resisting with violence.
