Teacher Eats Brownie

DECEMBER 9--A Maryland teenager is facing several criminal charges after he gave part of a pot brownie to a high school teacher, who later fell ill and was transported to a hospital for treatment, according to cops.

After the educator was stricken yesterday afternoon at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, she told a school resource officer that a student had given her a brownie “during third period and she had reason to believe it was a marijuana brownie.”

When confronted, the student admitted that he had given the teacher--as well as his 16-year-old girlfriend--part of the pot-laced brownie. The pupil added, however, that it was not his plan to dose the educator.

The student, who was not identified by police, said that when the teacher asked him for a piece of the brownie, he “got scared and panicked” and “didn’t mention it contained marijuana.” The teen’s girlfriend was “observed to be acting lethargic also,” cops noted.

Since the teacher was feeling “ill and disoriented,” she was taken to an area hospital, where she was treated and released.

The student was cited for assault, reckless endangerment, and two drug charges. He was subsequently released into the custody of a guardian. (1 page)
