New Delhi: A bizarre incident was reported in Houston where an eighth grader was probed for allegedly trying to pay a fake $2 bill for lunch at her school.
Danesiah Neal, a student at Fort Bend Independent School District’s Christa McAuliffe Middle School, said she was trying to buy some chicken nuggets with the $2 bill her grandmother gave her.
The school officials allegedly confiscated the bill and said it was fake. The student was sent to the police station where the police officials told her she could be in big trouble.
After investigating the alleged forgery, authorities from the Fort Bend School District Police determined the two dollar bill was, in fact, legal.
However, Danesiah Neal’s grandmother Sharon Kay Joseph was angry with the police and the school authority because that day her grandchild could not have lunch because of the entire ruckus.
Houston School District also admits that during the 2013- 2014 school year about forty similar cases were reported.
