A Madison Southern High School student is in trouble with the law for allegedly putting alcohol in his teacher's drink.

Berea Police Captain Ken Clark says the 15-year old boy brought the alcohol from home to school in a Mountain Dew bottle.

Police say the teenager drank some of the alcohol himself and then poured some of it into an unidentified teacher's Pepsi while she was busy helping other students on a computer.

Captain Clark says the teacher went to take a drink of her Pepsi but smelled the alcohol and told school administrators.

Police say the student was seen by others drinking the mountain dew bottle filled with Wild Turkey 101 throughout the school day.

After his arrest on charges of possession of alcohol by a minor and menacing, the boy was released to the custody of his parents.

the Principal of Madison Southern refused to comment but Police tell 27 Newsfirst that the 15-year old has been suspended for five days.

    This is for 'Another Educator;' If you aren't riled up when someone's spelling is so blatantly wrong, you aren't a good educator. By the way, "it don't rile me" is totally wrong from the grammar aspect. Even if "Educator" went about it in a way you might not have, at least he/she addressed the problem of poor spelling, grammar, etc. It might as well be brain dead if they aren't using what god gave them. Education is the key to success and poor spelling proves lack of education. If you had the common sense you say you possess, that common sense would tell you that as an educator, you should correct like 'Educator' had done.

    First off (Another Educator), the word is knowledge, not knowlege. There is a "d" in the word. Secondly, I have all the common sense I need to live my life. I learned a lot from my grandfather who had a sixth grade education. But even though his education was sixth grade, he was widely published in our hometown newspaper (large city up north) as well as national publications. He may not have received his diploma, but he took it upon himself to advance his learning so he could get a decent job and support a family. You're right to a point; spelling may not be everything but in today's world, I believe it is a must. More and more jobs are requiring people to type via computers and proper spelling, grammar and punctuation is definitely needed. Your opinion is just that; your opinion. You don't have to agree with me and I don't have to agree with you. I'm not holier than thou and neither of us are the best educator in the world; if we were, we wouldn't be arguing.

    I am in this kid's class and I was fortunately in the library at the time of the misconduct. Our class is not easily controlled so I'm sure that he had no problem getting the alcohol in the teacher's drink.

    I know who this teacher was and she sure did not deserve to have this happen to her. The worst thing about it is she is being blamed for something that she had no control over. This young man deserves more than a 5 day suspension. Regardless if the parent bought it or the kid, he still needs a stiff punishment. Southern has been in the news far too much lately and something needs to be done before it gets worse. You can walk the hallways and smile till the cows come home and it won't change these kids unless the school officials, parents, and the police department as well as the court systems work together and stop these kids. These teachers have sooo much to deal with and if the kids don't want to learn let the parents home school them. I guess I shouldn't have said that, because this world would go to pot!!!!!!!

    My name is spelled Murray; not Murry. Your attempt at humor was futile due to your lack of spelling prowess.

    the parents may not drink.but a student could be driving him or her self to school that a parent bought for them.and a bootlegger living a short distance from the school.and a car load of students could have went and bought it themselves.i know it happened in the area that i live at.true story.bootleggers dont care if they are under age.they should really get to the bottom of it and find how he got it.

    Educator....first I am a very good teacher. Secondly my skills as a teacher are shown throughout our school system!It takes more than "book knowlege" to become a GOOD teacher. It takes common sense which you seem to lack.Yes, it bothers me to see the lack of education in some of the comments left on this page. But it don't rile me like it does you.I have known many people that have no education or very little and they were some of the wisest people I have ever known. In fact they taught me most of the things I have used in everyday life.COMMON SENSE!As for having an education, if you approach students with bad grammar ect. and declare them "brain dead" as you did towards the earlier comment,you are an unconcerned educator there for a paycheck!FYI...brain dead is having no waves of activity metically.I hardly think the comment from Mount Vernon was sent from someone "brain dead". All I am saying is that if you are going to point out flaws fix your own first.Better than thou....HAH
