Student arrested for conspiracy to murder a dinosaur.
A 16-year-old Summerville High School student says he was arrested Tuesday morning and suspended after writing about killing a dinosaur using a gun.
Alex Stone said he and his classmates were told in class to write a few sentences about themselves, and a “status” as if it was a Facebook page.
Stone said in his “status” he wrote a fictional story that involved the words “gun” and “take care of business.”
“I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business,” Stone said.
Summerville police officials say Stone’s bookbag and locker were searched on Tuesday, and a gun was not found.
Imaginary guns are a huge threat, but did the police make any effort to track down the dinosaur?
