WINONA, Minn. -- A Catholic school in Minnesota has suspended a 9-year-old boy for performing a crotch-grabbing Michael Jackson dance move during a fundraiser.

She says principal Pat Bowlin was particularly unhappy with the handful of times the boy, Lenny, reached for his groin area to imitate Jackson's dancing Thursday night.

Bowlin told the newspaper he plans to meet with the family Monday. He declined to comment further, saying it was an internal issue.

Boberg said Lenny has performed similar Jackson dance routines the past two years at the event and the performance was approved during a rehearsal.
