A cheerleader at Hartford High School in Michigan wanted desperately to win Homecoming Queen. Sounds like the plot line for a typical high school movie, right? Well, it is, until you find out she was allegedly swapping a lil somethin' somethin' for those votes. It might've been a tasty treat, but it definitely wasn't legal and it caused quite the panic amongst facility, parents, and some students. The reason why? She is suspected with giving out a mass supply of pot-laced brownies for homecoming votes.
Hartford police said they received an anonymous tip that there was an abundance of weed brownies going around the school and started investigating the situation. When they found out the notorious chef was most likely a high school cheerleader trying to become homecoming queen, they were flat out flustered. Hartford patrolman Michael Prince said in an interview with WWMT, "You always think you've heard it all and seen it all, and there is always something new to surprise you."
Some of the forbidden treats were given to students directly while others were left in 'goodie bags' for the entire football team. While some students accepted the gifts, others were terrified of getting into trouble and flushed them down the toilet or reported it to their parents. One parent, in particular, spoke out about her concerns about the actions of this wannabe queen.
This parent, Angel Avery, said to WWMT, "What if one of those would have gotten in the wrong hands? What if one of those were given to a kid who had a reaction to it? So many worse things could have happened than what did." Avery learned about this situation when her daughter contacted her raising concerns about what was going on at school that day. "She said, mom, so and so brought medibles to school."
Now police are investigating the situation further to learn more about how this happened. They are encouraging parents to speak with their kids about reaching out to authority figures if they ever feel unsafe. However, investigating this situation might become a bit difficult since the alleged aspiring chef has moved out of the state since the incident occurred on September 26th. Now that's a quick get-a-way. Luckily there were no reports of anyone getting sick or getting into mischief after consuming the brownies.
What do you think should happen to this cheerleader-turned-chef? Is this just some harmless teenage trouble or do you think she could've really hurt someone?
