Student Spikes Teacher's Coffee with Poison

School officials in the East Bay recently punished the entire senior class after a "disrespectful" food fight escalated in the cafeteria. But like we said then, a good old-fashioned food fight is much safer than a bullet in the eye ... or poison in your coffee. 

A student at Oakland International High School reportedly put dry erase fluid and possibly even bleach in her teacher's cup of joe.

The teacher took a sip of her morning brew and, not surprisingly, spit it right out, according to media outlets.

The student was allegedly getting revenge on her teacher who got her into trouble after the student brought alcohol to school.

The teacher, who was not harmed, decided not to press charges, yet school officials, who only learned of the incident a day after it happened, aren't taking this lightly. Noel Gallo, a member of the Oakland school board, told reporters that for too long the district has not properly dealt with students' criminal behavior.


no excuse for negative behavior and this district cannot tolerate

that," Gallo told KTVU. "And so, appropriate action should take place."

And canceling prom probably won't suffice.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
