Horse riding teen suspended from school

Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Senior Dan Depaolis, dressed in mid-evil garb, rode a horse into the school's parking lot as part of spirit week.
What he, and his parents, thought was a good-natured stunt, the school deemed dangerous. Depaolis was suspended from school for two days.
The vice principle allegedly suspended the 17-year-old even after the boy’s father explained that the horse was brought in on a trailer and that no one was in danger.
The father tells FOX25 the school compared the stunt to bringing a “loaded firearm” to school......
