Student Allegedly Gave Semen-Laced Cupcake To Classmate Then Threatened To Burn Down Principal's House

A 16-year-old student was suspended after allegedly giving a classmate a cupcake laced with his semen, Minneapolis City Pages reports.

St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos told the Pioneer Press the boy gave cupcakes to "quite a few people" on May 9, but "only one supposedly had semen." Unfortunately, the unlucky classmate ingested the baked good, so authorities are unable to confirm the allegations.

On the day following his suspension, police say the student took to Twitter to express his outrage at the punishment -- threatening to burn down Principal Dan Mesick's house.

"It's under investigation by police, and we can't comment," St. Paul Public Schools spokeswoman Toya Stewart Downey told the paper.

The student has since withdrawn from the school district.

The alleged incident harkens back to the case of Mark Berndt, a 61-year-old former teacher at Miramonte Elementary School, who was charged with 23 counts of committing lewd acts on children after he allegedly spoon-fed semen to his students.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Berndt told his students they were about to play a "tasting game" in which they were blindfolded and, authorities say, fed cookies laced with semen.
