Joquasha Rosado, 17, was arrested last Monday for allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old boy with a metal stool because he passed gas near her.
The incident happened at the South Richmond High School in Staten Island, New York, which educates teens with special needs and disabilities, noted Staten Island Live.

NYPD Officer Jennifer Hadley said in her report that Rosado also punched the teen in his “head approximately ten to fifteen times with a closed fist,” reports The Smoking Gun.
The young man had “a bleeding gash that required eight staples” and was taken to a nearby hospital where he received medical care.
Rosado was charged with second-degree felony assault, and misdemeanors of harassment, third-degree assault and criminal weapon possession.
She was released on her own recognizance last Tuesday, but must return to court on Feb. 25.
