While my son was in Welding class, he and another student filled a plastic bottle with Acetylene and lit it with a torch. Nothing happened. They tried it a second time and a loud pop happened and the bottle was airborne. No injury or damage occurred.
He was placed in S.A.C. for two days then placed in alternative program. I appealed the punishment with the principal and was reassured student would be allowed back in school. Now he is being placed in a Juvenile Detention facility. No charges have been filled and the other student was released and allowed back into another school.
My son has never been disciplined or been referred for disrupting class. No criminal intent was meant. He is a good kid and never had any other issues.
