Oklahoma student arrested for too many absences


A junior high student in Oklahoma was put in handcuffs and taken to an intervention center because the school believed he had missed too many days of class.

The student’s mother is outraged, but the Muskogee Public School System says it’s all perfectly legal.

“It’s my fault. Exactly. It’s not my 14-year-old son’s fault. He doesn’t have a car to get himself there,” said Stephanie, who didn’t want her last name published.

She’s upset her son, a student at Alice Robertson Jr. High, was treated like a criminal.
