(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's the latest in a string of suspensions across America for having something that looks like a gun.
Josh Welch, a second-grade student in Maryland was suspended, allegedly for shaping his toaster pastry into a gun.
"It was already a rectangle, and I just kept on biting it and biting it, and tore off the to, and it kinda looked like a gun, but it wasn't," Josh said.
Josh admits he was trying to shape the pastry, but into a mountain, but it ended up looking like a gun.
A teacher saw it, reported him, and called his father, B.J. Welch.
"I would almost call it insanity," Welch said. "I mean, with all the potential issues that could be dealt with at school--real threats, bullies, whatever the issue is; it's a pastry."
School officials would not comment on the case, citing privacy reasons.
Josh's dad says he was told his son also said "bang bang" while holding the breakfast pastry, which "constituted a threat."
