Md. Student Pricks Nearly 20 Classmates With Blood Lancet, Sheriff Says

FALLSTON, Md. (AP) — Officials are investigating after they say a Maryland high school student pricked his classmates with a device used by diabetics.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office tells local news media outlets that incident happened Thursday at Fallston High School.

The sheriff’s office says a 15-year-old boy pricked nearly 20 classmates with a blood lancet. The device is used by diabetics to draw a small blood sample.

Students who were pricked by the device were seen by the school nurse and have been advised to see their doctors.

Maj. Jack Simpson of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office tells WJV-TV that officials believe that the student “thought it was humorous.”

Officials say they haven’t determined whether criminal charges will be filed against the teen.
