Authorities in North Carolina have accused a teenager of stabbing a high school classmate during a fight over a doughnut.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said 17-year-old Robert Wallace is charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon after 16-year-old Teonia Brinson was stabbed in the stomach Wednesday morning at Westover High School in Fayetteville.

Officials say the two exchanged words after Wallace refused to sell Brinson a doughnut.

Brinson was taken by ambulance to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. She was treated and released for wounds that were not life threatening.

Wallace was released from custody on a $2,000 bond. The family couldn't be reached by telephone and it wasn't immediately known if Wallace had an attorney.
