Student's Harmless Action With Former Teacher Lands Her In Court

At Moody Middle School in Virginia, Karrie May is arguing against disciplinary documents that claim her 14-year-old daughter used a baby carrot as a weapon against one of her former teachers.

May said, "I don't understand this. Yes, it happened, and I can see a couple of days in school detention or even a couple days out-of-school suspension. But this goes way beyond that. We have to go to court, and her charges aren't small: assault and battery with a weapon."

Last year, the teen allegedly left class and encountered a former teacher. As a joke, she pulled a baby carrot out of her lunch and threw it at the instructor. She did not think it would hit her temple. The girl has since been suspended.

CBS 6 legal expert Todd Stone said, "If it's a soft carrot, it may not be as offensive. But if it's a raw carrot, you don't have to have an injury or show you were hurt to prove a battery. It just has to be an offensive, vindictive touch. That's what the law says. This could go before a judge and there could be sufficient evidence to find her guilty, but I don't think it's something a judge would want to find her guilty of. They may offer her counseling, sort of a carrot at the end of a stick."
