US student arrested for changing pal's name in yearbook to sexual word

New York, May 30 (ANI): A student from Missouri could be charged with first-degree property damage - a felony - and harassment, after she changed her friend's name in school's yearbook to a sexually suggestive word.

Kaitlyn Booth, 17, was arrested on May 14 after teachers at Hickman High School, in Columbia, noticed that she had changed Raigan Mastain's last name to "masturbate," on the day 700 copies of the book were being distributed, the New York Daily News reported.

Mastain told the Columbia Daily Tribute that she "wasn't devastated" by the gag, as when a person is in high school, they do things that is not necessarily the smartest, asserting this was an example of that.

After finding the error in the yearbook, teachers spent more than 12 hours putting stickers on the page to correct the name. (ANI)
