Inhaler causes deadly conduct charges for 16 year old
    #2250559 - 01/18/04 03:43 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Puff from inhaler lands student, 16, in county custody
By DALE LEZON
Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle

A student at Magnolia High School is in juvenile
detention, accused of harming a teacher with prescription
drugs from a mouth inhaler, Montgomery County officials
said.

The 16-year-old student, who has not been charged,
reportedly used his albuterol inhaler and then blew what
appeared to be smoke into the face of a teacher Thursday,
said Bill Pattillo, chief of the juvenile division of the
county attorney's office. Albuterol can be dangerous,
Pattillo said.

The boy is being held at the county's juvenile detention
center, Pattillo said. He is expected to have a hearing
Tuesday to determine if he can be released.

The boy's family told KHOU-TV he used his inhaler in the
school cafeteria and is debating whether district
officials went too far in punishing him.

"Here's a kid using his medication who ended up in jail
for five days. ... something, something's wrong with our
system," Steven Wilson, the boy's uncle, told the
station.

"It's absurd," his mother, Judy Dugan Todd, told KHOU.

"It's ridiculous. It's an inhaler."

Pattillo said the boy may be charged with a felony. He is
still investigating the allegations, he added.

"My office believes there is probable cause to hold him
for an assault on a public servant, which is a
third-degree felony," Pattillo said. The student's
attorney could not be reached for comment Friday.

Pattillo said the teacher had a "physiological reaction."
Her heart reportedly started racing, and she went to a
doctor to get medication to slow her heart rate, he
added.

The boy's family told KHOU they met with school officials
who said the teacher had an allergic reaction when she
inhaled some of the albuterol but that she does not blame
the student.

"They all agree it was not malicious. However, she ended
up still having that reaction that supposedly threatened
her life, and so they charged deadly conduct ... the same
charge as a handgun," Wilson said.

Albuterol can cause side effects including palpitations, a
fast heart rate, elevated blood pressure, tremors and
nausea. Throat irritation and nosebleeds can also occur.

"The reason one person can't give another person
prescription drugs is that the drugs could seriously harm
them," Pattillo said.

Officials at Magnolia Independent School District would
not comment on the incident. In a written statement
released Friday, the district said "a high school student
has been arrested as a result of the public discharge of
contents of a prescription inhaler by the student. The
discharge was unrelated to any medical necessity and
resulted in health consequences to a high school
teacher."

The county's Precinct 5 Constable's Office acknowledged in
a written statement that it is investigating the
allegations.

An inhaler led to the arrest last year of a 15-year-old
student at Caney Creek High School in Conroe Independent
School District. The student lent his girlfriend his
albuterol asthma inhaler in September. Albuterol,
according to the Texas Health and Safety Code, is a
dangerous drug. The state's education code states that
delivery of a dangerous drug is cause for mandatory
expulsion.

I don't know what the hell is wrong with the teacher, too much talk about terrorists prolly caused a panic attack, but anyone who has had to use albuteral for any time knows that there is no where near enough medicine left over after inhaling and exhaling to cause anything to happen from re-inhaling it.. hell unless you "puff" it within an inch or two from your mouth /your/ not even going to get enough to help...

> but anyone who has had to use albuteral for any time knows

Chances are the teacher that he 'attacked' doesn't know anything about albuteral. I think we need less police and more paddles in schools... back when we used to blister kids asses when they misbehaved, we didn't have kids bringing guns into schools, killing each other, attacking teachers, etc...

it's to late to implement that again though, it seems kids have been changing for the worse every year, I see a teacher spanking a kid and then the kid knocking the teacher out or shooting him/her because they were embarrsed infront of there friends. Back to the point though I think it's fuckin rediculious they charged him with public discharge of
contents of a prescription, that's like arresting someone who was walking down the street smoking a ciggarette and charging them with distrubiting tobacco to minors because they could breath in the second hand smoke :rolleyes:

There's a thin line between sanity and insanity... and I just snorted it.
