I once got detention in high school because I was standing by a student who was digging through the teachers desk. I was standing there because I had a question I needed help with but instead I got blamed for being a part of it by the teacher. The other students stood up for me and I still got detention.
So what he says is possible. Wrong place wrong time.
Lol I got a similar story.
Someone at my school borrowed the bolt cutters (you could do that if you lost your key), but instead gave them to someone and they cut other people's locks and stole stuff.
Because someone saw me next to the guy who borrowed the bult cutters, I got questioned wether that guy cut the lock. I said he didn't.
Then some piss weak cunt said that he did, but in actual fact he didn't.
Then i got called to the deans office he goes nuts at me saying I lied to him blah blah. I sad no i didn't and kept denying it. Then he took me to the princple to try and suspend me.
Princple asked if I was lying I said no. the dean was liek he is look at ihm blah blah. Principle said why are you lying. I said i'm not he didn't cut the locks. Then he showed me the cut locks and said well someone did. I said they did indeed but it wasn't that guy. Then he asked who was it I said X person.
Then the dean was like why didn't you tell me. I said because you never asked, you asked if thisperson did it lol.
Then the principle is like were you scared to report it blah blah, you are a big bloke you could look after yourself against that person. I said I could, but your school policy is fighting means getting expelled so that i what would have happened if I snitched.
Then he let me go and siad fair point haha.
