A 12-year-old Lombard Middle School boy was arrested Monday at school for attempting to sell crushed aspirin.
According to police reports, the boy told other students he snorted the crushed aspirin up his nose. An assistant principal at the school gave police a baggie of white powder and two aspirin pills she confiscated from the boy. It field tested negative for cocaine.
While being interviewed by police, the boy was laughing and said he thought it was a joke. The boy was arrested for possession of a look-alike substance and released to the custody of his parents. He was referred to teen court.
