Eight graders serve laxative-laced donuts to other students

A few eighth graders on New York's Long Island wanted to get a laugh out of an early April Fool's joke. But they got in trouble instead.

Two 13-year-olds and three 14-year-olds have been charged with second-degree tampering of a consumer product after allegedly serving doughnuts laced with laxatives to classmates Friday. The teens have been released to their parents and ordered to appear in Family Court.
Authorities said 19 students and a teacher ate some of the doughnuts. The were no apparent injuries, but a school district spokeswoman in Holtsville, N.Y., said ambulances were dispatched to the middle school as a precaution. The school district said it will take "appropriate disciplinary action." Article here.
