Eighth-graders Cassandra and Aliyah Russell of Chicago never imagined they’d be arrested in their school cafeteria, much less for throwing food.
But that’s just what happened following lunchtime mayhem last Thursday at the Perspectives Charter Middle School, south of Chicago. More than two dozen students, ages 11 to 15, were rounded up by police, arrested and charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct.
“They took us to jail, fingerprinted us, mugshotted us, or whatever, all because of a food fight…I was arrested. Handcuffs on,” 13-year-old Cassandra told ABC News.
“We were suspended, went to jail and now have to go to court,” said 14-year-old Aliyah.
The sisters’ mother, Erica, told ABC News she’s stunned.
