COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Ohio principal says she suspended a
10-year-old boy from school for three days for pretending his finger was
a gun and pointing it at another student's head.
The boy's father
says he thinks it's the adults who are acting childish after the boy
was suspended from Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in Columbus
The fifth-grader said he was "just playing around." But district spokesman Jeff Warner tells The Columbus Dispatch that Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has
warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year, and
everyone should know the rules by now.
Warner says the boy put his finger to the side of the other student's head and pretended to shoot "kind of execution style."
The boy's father says the suspension is overboard.
