Too hot to handle

Hot sauce is not a deadly weapon, after all.

CONCORD, Calif. — A 16-year-old girl is back in school Friday after school officials recanted their decision to suspend her for bringing hot sauce to school, NBC11’s Jodi Hernandez reported.

Laura Martin said she and a friend were given a two-day suspension for possession of a deadly weapon, Mad Dog 357 hot sauce. The principal said the girls were suspended for letting friends test their ability to handle the heat.

A 16-year-old boy drank some sauce, became breathless and started shaking. Paramedics examined him and found nothing wrong. Paramedics were called again after another student got sauce in his eye.
