Texas High School Student In Trouble For Accidentally Bringing Beer To Class! Proves Honesty Isn't Always The Best Policy!
A mother living in Texas is furious that her son is in trouble at school! Especially since part of the reason he's in trouble is because he told the truth!
Christi Seale's 17-year-old son Chaz was in a rush to school when he accidentally grabbed a beer can from the fridge instead of a soda can. Something that his momma can totally verify!
"He was in a hurry, running late. We were talking about school and he put it all together and took off for school."
When Chaz got to Livingston High School and realized his can of pop had a little more pop than he had intended, he immediately gave his teacher the can of beer.
But the teacher, either following school rules or just wasn't feeling the student's explanation, gave the beer can to the principal.
Who then suspended Chaz for three days!!!
Here's what Chaz said:
"I gave it to the teacher thinking I wouldn't get in trouble, and I got in trouble."
But the suspension was the least of his worries. The 17-year-old also was told he'd be attending an alternative school for the next two months where we're assuming he'll be taught how to correct his "behavior".
But Chaz's mom finds the punishment excessive - especially since he could've easily just not told anyone about the beer can and probably have gotten away with it!
Livingston Independent School District, however, doesn't believe their actions were inappropriate, and released a statement that said:
"The principal of Livingston High School followed appropriate LISD administrative procedures and protocol. LISD encourages any parent who is in disagreement with an administrative decision to seek relief through the appellate process as provided through Livingston ISD policies. Livingston ISD policies may be accessed through the Livingston ISD Homepage."
Chaz's mom Christi Seale IS appealing that decision, and has also started a Facebook page to help her baby boy out.
Chaz's honesty just proved the old saying: no good deed goes unpunished!
