A 16-year-old South Carolina boy was arrested, suspended, and charged with disorderly conduct after penning a story about shooting a dinosaur for his creative-writing class.
Alex Stone is a student at Summerville High School. For an assignment in his creative writing class, he was told to write a few sentences about himself along with a “status” as if it were on his Facebook page. “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,” the teen explained to WHNS.
