Life Imitating Fashion?

Last May, we took a look at apparel, books, and other items that encouraged girls to throw rocks at boys.

Well, it appears as though an eleven-year-old girl
has done just that in response to the boy's throwing of a water balloon at her.

The two-pound rock struck the boy's head causing a laceration with much bleeding. The girl was subsequently arrested and locked up for five days. (Which seems inappropriate to us, given the circumstances.) Felony charges against the girl have since been dropped.

Rumor has it that the boy (and several friends) may have been harassing the girl with earlier water-balloon drenchings.
