ORANGE CITY, Florida — Paging Ozzy Osbourne.
A 17-year-old high school student in Florida is charged with breaking onto school property and biting the head off a live chicken, cops said.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s office says David Andrew Jimenez had boasted to pals that he had decapitated the bird over the weekend. Word soon filtered back to officials at University High School, who contacted the police.
Cops say Jimenez had made his way onto school grounds around 11 p.m. Saturday and entered a chicken coop that had been erected there as part of a “Farm-to-Table” event that had been held at the school earlier that day.
On Monday, a teacher found the dead bird in the school parking lot. The chicken’s head was found in its coop, and eggs were found splattered in the gym and against its doors.
Jimenez was turned into cops by his mother on Tuesday and has been charged with animal cruelty and trespassing.
Cops said they are still investigating whether any other students had been involved.
