Time for a change: a report about farting, not 911

An eighth-grader in Lakeland, Florida was suspended from riding the school bus for three days after being accused of farting.

The bus driver wrote on a misbehavior form that a 15-year-old was passing gas on the bus to make the other children laugh, creating a stench so bad that it was difficult to breathe.

Polk County school officials said there's no rule against flatulence, but there are rules against causing a disturbance on the bus.

The teen said he wasn't the farter.

Whether he did it or not, he might have gotten off easy. A 13-year-old student at a Stuart, Florida school was arrested in November after authorities said he farted in class. (info from The Associated Press)
