Florida boy accused of assault with rubber band

A 13-year-old student in Orange County, Fla., was suspended for 10 days and could be banned from school over an alleged assault with a rubber band, according to a WKMG Local 6 News report.

Gomez said when his science teacher demanded the rubber band, the student said he tossed it on her desk.

"They said if he would have aimed it a little more and he would have gotten it closer to her face he would have hit her in the eye," mother Jenette Rojas said.

Rojas said she was shocked to learn that her son was being punished for a Level 4 offense -- the highest Level at the school. Other violations that also receive level 4 punishment include arson, assault and battery, bomb threats and explosives, according to the Code of Student Conduct.

  • Hah, another strike of evil zero tolerance rules against minors. It really is sad that stupid immature boy behavior is put in a criminal category. This can't be good, keep speaking out against this governmental industrialization of school children.

    Back in the day a rubber band offense might be serious, perhaps an in school suspension for almost shooting the teacher. This is post columbine/911 fascist period for american school children.

    keep keeping on loretta, and all usmjp.
