New York — A 7-year-old Special-ed student is at the center of a controversy after cops arrested him in class for throwing an Easter egg tantrum and jumping on a table, his mom said.

The child, Joseph Anderson, became upset after he was decorating an egg at Public School 153 in Maspeth.

When his mom Jessica Anderson was informed of the tantrum, she told school officials she would pick him up. Instead, the school called the police and he was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center in metal cuffs.

“He was crying and saying, ‘I want Mommy,'” Anderson said. “Why handcuff him? Why get the cops involved? He’s only 7.”
