OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City school district has
suspended for the rest of the year an 8-year-old student after
administrators found him in possession of 0.25 of a gram of marijuana.
A police report notes that Eisenhower Elementary School administrators contacted authorities Friday after finding the drug. The report notes that the student was emotional and unable to provide officers with any information about the marijuana.
The student's parents were told of the incident, which was referred to the state Department of Human Services. A DHS spokeswoman declined to comment on the case.
Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says no arrests have been made in the case and that DHS did not take the student into protective custody.
June 1 is the final day of school in the Oklahoma City district.
