Zacchaeus Crawford said anger is an understatement for how he is feeling after his children were arrested.

“It makes me want to fight. I’m not going to lie and say it doesn’t,” Crawford said. “How would you feel if it was your child? I’m frustrated.”

His children, ages 9, 10 and 11, were arrested at Hobgood Elementary last Friday, along with an 8-year-old and a 13-year-old.

Crawford said a 5-year-old and a 6-year-old were fighting over a basketball game in his backyard while another child recorded it.
