DE GRAFF, Ohio – Officials say a 13-year-old Ohio boy was suspended for bringing moonshine to school, and a science teacher who knew he was making the illegal alcohol was reprimanded for not reporting that the boy brought it to class.
The boy brought the liquid to school in De Graff, about 50 miles northwest of Columbus, in January. Riverside Local Schools Superintendent Scott Mann tells the Dayton Daily News he thinks the teen wanted to show it to the teacher but didn't mean any harm. The teacher dumped it into a drain.
She later received a written reprimand for not immediately reporting the situation.
The Bellefontaine Examiner reports sheriff's investigators determined the teen and another boy had discussed the moonshine-making process with the teacher, and she'd warned them it could be dangerous.
