Danville, PA (AP) -- A Pennsylvania girl may have to do community service for wetting her pants.
School officials say she did it on purpose. But her mother told a newspaper that the 12-year-old special education student wet her pants because she was frightened by the principal.
Details are scarce, with school officials at Danville Middle School declining comment.
The mother says the girl refused to wash pots and pans after a holiday lunch last month, then wet her pants after teachers summoned the principal. Police have told the girl's parents they could probably avoid a fine if the girl does community service.
