Teenage Student Tosses Baby Carrot at a Teacher, School says It’s Assault

This is getting out of hand. My goodness, a baby carrot [1] is a weapon?!

A 14-year-old girl was suspended from school for a month and faces possible assault and battery charges for playfully throwing a baby carrot at one of her former teachers.

The speeding salad staple hit the teacher’s forehead—but that wasn’t the girl’s intention, she said. Rather, she was just trying to get the teacher’s attention.
