Did she do the right thing? School says NO!

by Randy Allen

All she wanted to do was help her friend.  

A 17-year-old high school senior from Massachusetts drove to a party to pick up her friend who was too drunk to drive, and was punished for it.

She lost her title as volleyball team captain, and was also suspended for five games.

Authorities busted the underage drinking party and warned the 15 students there that they would be called to court for drinking.

The sober girl was called to court, but an officer vouched for her being sober.

That didn’t change the school’s decision to punish her for her friend’s behavior, so her mother has filed a lawsuit over the incident.

The parents of her teammates are also forming a petition to support her.
