    Boy sets classmates hair on fire.


    A 17-year-old East Valley High School student was arrested Tuesday after he set the hair of a female student afire while the two were seated in class.

    The suspect was booked into Spokane County Juvenile Detention center on a felony count of Second-Degree Assault. His name is withheld because he is a juvenile.

    Deputy Ken Dodge was called to the school shortly after 10:30 a.m. Tuesday by a school staff member that was holding the suspect in the office area.

    Dodge learned from the 16-year-old victim that the suspect was seated behind her in math class when she noticed a "weird smell." She quickly realized the odor was her hair burning. The suspect patted her head with his hand, apparently to extinguish the fire.

    The victim began feeling her head and pulling clumps of burned hair away. Hair that didn't come loose had burned ends.

    No clue what he was thinking so uncalled for. Poor girl.

    What in the he*l is wrong with these kids?

    Like, who does that? Why?

    I'll be waiting to hear the boy's parents say it was all a misunderstanding. No big deal. I hope the girl is alright.

    WOW! Guess the old "ponytail dunked in the ink well" has taken on a whole new meaning with this generation. Thank God she wasn't severely hurt.
