Gee. Considering what the police do NOT arrest people for these days, arresting a kid of 6 is rather surprising.
However, this sounds like a sad kid, apparently neglected by his parents, and in need of dental and psychological care. He might have neurological problems ( with signs like the mirror-writing ) but needs a proper neurological assessment to decide this.
I wonder whether the arrest might be used as an opportunity ? Could someone have a word with the polic e, even the mahistrate's office, tipping them off that there may be neglect, and neurological as well as dental problems, and urge that they get child welfare involved, to assess the child and his home situation, and his medical needs, to help the court reach a fair and helpful decision. I think the court might even ordwer the child to have further assessments and treatment, and require the parents to see to this
