Teen allegedly bites 11 students; father blames 'Twilight' movie
A McCombs Middle School student may be taking the hit movie and book "Twilight" too seriously.
A 13-year-old boy at the Des Moines school was referred to juvenile corrections after allegedly biting 11 students between Feb. 10 and March 13, a Des Moines police report said.
According to the report, the boy bit a 13-year-old female student on the right hand at a track meet on March 13. McCombs Vice Principal Connie Sloan investigated the incident and found that the boy had bitten 10 other students.
When police contacted the boy's father, he said that his son didn't mean to hurt anyone and that he was biting other students because of the movie "Twilight."
The film "Twilight" is based on a series of novels by Stephenie Meyer about a teenage girl's love affair with a vampire. The film, popular with tweens and teens, has grossed more than $191 million in box office receipts in the United States since its November release.
The boy was given a delayed referral to juvenile court on an assault charge.http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20090327/NEWS01/903270358/1001/NEWSLinkback: https://tubagbohol.mikeligalig.com/index.php?topic=18921.0
