Student Faces Charge for Disturbance
Saline Police were called after an angry 17-year-old female student dumped water in the purse of a substitute teacher April 1.
The teacher told police the student became frustrated with her work and refused to work on it. She wadded her school papers and threw them on the floor. The teacher asked the student to take a break, which caused the student to begin yelling and swearing at the teacher.
The student took her papers back from the teacher and then grabbed a water bottle and apparently looked as if she was going to throw it at the teacher. The teacher asked her not to. The student then opened the bottle and dumped the water into the teacher’s purse as she swore at the teacher and other students.
She faces a charge for disturbing school.
