arrested for creative writing

More on Allen Lee, that high school kid in Cary, IL who who got arrested for writing a violent, disturbing essay in his creative writing class.

This kid is a straight-A student, is on the school's wrestling team, has never had history of disciplinary problems, and planned to join the Marines after graduating this year. And now he's possibly facing 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine. Yes, his essay includes references to blood, booze, drugs, stabbing, shooting and sex with dead bodies. Highly disturing.
