WYOMING (VINnews) — A 16-year-old girl from Wyoming was arrested after showing up to Laramie High School maskless.
Grace Smith sat with state Sen. Anthony Bouchard for an interview, in which she said she said police arrested her on trespassing charges, following her suspension for defying the school’s mask mandate and her subsequent refusal to leave school grounds.
In addition to her arrest, Smith says she received a $1,000 trespassing fine.
She called herself a “straight-A student” who has “never broken the law.”
“I would never choose to do anything wrong and I never saw myself sitting in the back of a cop car, handcuffed,” she said.
