MOODY, Texas — A charge has been filed against a Central Texas student on allegations he urinated in a teacher’s drinking cup in April.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that McLennan County juvenile prosecutors this week filed a harassment of a public servant charge against the Moody High School student.

A hearing has been set for Oct. 2 in state district court. His attorney, Chadrick Henderson, says his client says he’s not guilty.

Moody police investigated the April incident and he was detained for two weeks in a juvenile justice center before being released in May.

Moody Independent School District Superintendent Gary Martel said the boy, who remains a Moody student, was disciplined by the district in accordance with the student code of conduct.
