Schoolgirl facing assault charges for throwing baby carrot at her teacher
A 14-year-old girl is facing assault charges because she threw a baby carrot at one of her teachers. Student Aliya May says she saw the teacher in the corridor after lunch and launched the baby carrot. Unfortunately for both of them it bounced off the teacher’s forehead before falling on the floor. School disciplinary documents allege that the vegetable was used as a weapon against the teacher. Aliya is currently suspended from Moody Middle School in the United States. Her mother Karrie said: “I don’t even know how to combat the stupidity. “I don’t understand this. “Yes, it happened, and I can see a couple of days in school detention or even a couple of days out-of-school suspension, but this goes way beyond that”, she told WTRV News.

Carrot: Aliya and her mum The mum added the school’s Disciplinary Review Board sent them a letter trying to get Aliya to admit guilt over the incident, which they declined to do. The school, in Henrico County, Virginia, refused to comment about the on-going situation.
