A high school football player suspended a year for “hugging” … Yes, you read that right, hugging

FROM CNN: To Sam McNair, a 17-year-old high school senior in Duluth, Georgia, it was an innocent hug. “You never know what someone’s going through,” McNair told CNN affiliate WGCL in Atlanta. “A hug might help.”
It didn’t in this case because after McNair hugged a teacher, he ended up with a year-long suspension from Duluth High School, putting his college plans in jeopardy. “He’s a senior; he plays football. He was getting ready for lacrosse season, and you are stripping him of the opportunity to even get a full scholarship for athletics for college,” April McNair, Sam’s mother, told WGCL.
