How young is too young to be arrested?

Apparently in Indiana, 6 years old is old enough.

School leaders at an elementary school called police on a boy that he said was assaulting the principal by kicking and hitting him.

The boy was not handcuffed but he was placed in the back of a police car.

The boy's parents are cooperating with school officials and trying to get help with his behavior issues.
