Teen suspended for mistakenly packing beer in lunchbox

A Facebook group set up in support of a 17-year-old student suspended for accidentally packing a beer in his lunchbox has attracted more than 3,000 fans.

1779289_1388019778085319_795578723_nChaz Seale, a student at Livingston High School in Texas, was running late of school when he accidentally packed a can of Coors Lite beer in his lunchbox, according to a report in the New York Daily News.

Realising his mistake, Seale handed the beer to a teacher, who, rather than praise his honesty, reported Chaz to the principal who suspended the teen for three days and forced him to spend two months at a disciplinary alternative school for violating the school’s “zero tolerance” policy on alcohol.

His mother, Christie Seale, told the paper: “He was in a hurry, running late. We were talking about school and he put it all together and took off for school.

“There has to be a grey area; you can’t punish a kid for doing the right thing, the same punishment that you would give a kid that you catch doing the wrong thing.”

A Facebook group in support of Chas has already attracted 3,800 likes.

Livingston Independent School District said in a statement: “The principal of Livingston High School followed appropriate LISD administrative procedures and protocol.

“LISD encourages any parent who is in disagreement with an administrative decision to seek relief through the appellate process as provided through Livingston ISD policies. Livingston ISD policies may be accessed through the Livingston ISD Homepage.”

Seale is currently appealing the decision to try and get his punishment reduced .

    That’s not zero tolerance, that’s zero common sense.
