Teen Arrested After Passing Gas at School

Filed under: In The News, Weird But True

If this kid in Stuart, Florida was looking for a little attention at school, he certainly found an offensive way to get it. According to the Martin County Sheriff's Office, the 13-year-old was arrested earlier this month after purposely disrupting his classroom at Spectrum Junior-Senior High School.

No, he wasn't threatening anyone or endangering the lives of his classmates or teacher - he was passing gas. The Sheriff's report alleges that the boy repeatedly and deliberately broke wind in the classroom and shut off a few computer that other students were using.

After confessing to his crimes, he was arrested on charges of 'disruption of a school function' and released to his mother.

You know, if deliberately and repeatedly passing gas is a crime, I know a few people who should be behind bars for life.
