For writing about shooting a dinosaur, S.C. high school student gets arrested
Alex Stone, 16, says he was just doing an assignment. South Carolina cops take him in after he pens fictional story about shooting a pet dinosaur.
A South Carolina student and his mom are steamed at school officials who called the cops after the high schooler wrote a story about killing his neighbor's pet dinosaur.
"I could understand if they made him rewrite it because he did have 'gun' in it," said mother Karen Gray. "I mean first of all we don't have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he's not even old enough to buy a gun."
