Boy gets trash duty for roughhousing
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A woman whose son was suspended from school for roughhousing with a teacher punished the boy by making him wear a sign while he picked up litter on a city street.
Travis Griffin earned the 10-day suspension from Creston High School after putting a teacher in a headlock while horsing around Thursday.
Rather than letting him stay home, his mother, Veronica Griffin, made the 15-year-old wear a sign on his back that read, "I made a bad choice in school now I'm living with it."
"He has to know when his actions are not appropriate that there could be consequences to those actions and those consequences could be humiliating," Veronica told WOOD-TV Friday.
For his part, Travis said he picked up trash, was chased by dogs and stared at by passers-by as he walked the 5-mile-long street.
"Walking with the sign I didn't care too much about," he told WZZM-TV. "Picking up the trash, yeah, I did care about that. I thought that was a little humiliating."
He said he's learned his lesson.
"I know I am not going to do that again, put teachers in a full nelson," Travis said. "Although, I was joking around with him and he took it too seriously."
