ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A judge has upheld the suspension of a Maryland elementary school student who chewed his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and pretended to shoot classmates.
Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Ronald Silkworth ruled this week that the school system could reasonably consider the 7-year-old boy's actions disruptive and a two-day suspension was appropriate.
The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/1Q99eHh) that in March 2013 the Brooklyn Park second-grader nibbled his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and exclaimed: "Look, I made a gun!"
The boy's father says he still want to clear the record of his son, who is now finishing fifth grade, and is considering his next step.
