Boy, 8, served with restraining order at school

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. -- An 8-year-old Jefferson County boy was removed from his third grade class at Hillsboro Elementary on September 8 and was issued a restraining order by a deputy.

According to his mother, Peyton Whitehead is not allowed to return to school or even leave his home under the threat of arrest.

The ex-parte order does not allow Peyton within 1,000 feet of the children who live in a home on his block outside of Hillsboro.

The father who filed the paperwork says that Peyton has made threats against his children. Both parents admit they have been feuding in recent months.

Peyton's mother says she is forced to home school her son, who has a learning disability, until a court appearance on September 20.

Peyton Whitehead, 8, was served a restraining order in school by a deputy Thursday. He has allegedly made threats against another child who lives nearby.
