Fla. student arrested for 'passing gas' at school

STUART, Fla. – A student at a Florida school has been arrested after authorities said he was "passing gas" and turning off his classmates' computers.

The 13-year-old boy "continually disrupted his classroom environment" by intentionally breaking wind. He then shut off some computers other students were using, according to a report released Friday by the Martin County Sheriff's Office.

The Spectrum Junior-Senior High School was arrested Nov. 4.

A school resource officer placed the boy under arrest after he confessed about his behavior, according to the report. He was charged with disruption of school function and released to his mother.
