Thanks to everyone who sent in this story, about a 14-year-old girl in Wisconsin, who apparently refused to stop text messaging in class... and was arrested because of it. Yes, the teacher apparently called the cops, and they arrested her for "disorderly conduct." Obviously, the girl was being insubordinate in class, but isn't that what detention/suspension/etc. rules are for? Calling in the cops (and then having the girl arrested) seems a bit extreme.
