COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) - Police say three Orange County seventh graders had to be hospitalized for stomachaches after eating what was likely a marijuana-laced brownie at school, and the boy who brought it is under arrest.
Costa Mesa police Lt. Paul Dondero says the TeWinkle Middle School students went to the nurse Wednesday afternoon complaining of stomach problems.
The 12-year-old student who brought the brownie to school was arrested and booked for investigation of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His identity isn't being released because he is a juvenile.
It's not certain if it was marijuana in the brownie that made students ill because none of it was left for further investigation.
Three students were taken to the hospital and two others were released to their parents and taken home.
