HAYWARD, WISCONSIN — A 16-year-old Wisconsin student was fined $200 for taking a second lunch at school.
A written brief alleges that the head cook pressed charges against the student for theft, but the district superintendent says that's false.
He adds the school provides free and reduced meals to students and did not refer the incident to police.
Meanwhile, a fundraising page set up to help the teen pay his fine received more than $1,000 in donations.
