The teacher found out about the kindergartener’s plan before he had a chance to show the items to his class.
“He was very excited when he got to school,” Superintendent Donna Wright said of the September 6 incident. “But I don’t think he knew what he had.”
“That was a first for show-and-tell in this town,” Police Chief Richard Downing said. He added that the boy’s mother, Michelle Cheatham, 32, was arrested later on drug charges and released on bail.
