Beer mistake

Teen punished after bringing to beer to school by mistake

A mother says her son made an honest mistake while packing his school lunch bag but now that mistake is costing him dearly.

Christi Seale says her 17-year-old son Chaz accidentally confused a beer can for a soda can and packed it in his lunch.

"He was in a hurry, running late. We were talking about school and he put it all together and took off for school," she said.

When he realized his mistake at school, Chaz gave the unopened beer to his teacher. But that teacher then reported it to the principal at Livingston High School, who suspended the boy for three days and then sent him to an alternative school for two months.

Chaz said, "I gave it to the teacher thinking I wouldn't get in trouble, and I got in trouble."

Seale says the punishment is excessive. She says she always taught her son to be honest and forthright and now he has to pay a price for that honesty.
