Chicken Nugget Lands Student in Hot Water

Monday was chicken nugget day in the cafeteria at Tennessee’s Farragut High School.

“You can’t go wrong with nugget day at high school,” senior Carson Koller told me. “The nuggets were great.”
Carson, an Eagle Scout, was so hungry he got six nuggets instead of five.
The 17-year-old had no idea that extra nugget would result in a trip to the principal’s office and make headlines across the fruited plain.
Carson, who has a spotless academic record, was accused of stealing and was suspended for “theft of property” – all over a single chicken nugget that he had actually paid for.
