(Newser) – The gay teen who brought a stun gun to school to defend himself against bullies—then fired said gun into the air—is paying the piper: Arsenal Tech High School has expelled Darnell "Dynasty" Young, who now won't be allowed to finish his junior year, and will miss the first semester of his senior year, reports the Indianapolis Star. "I couldn’t believe that they did it," says mom Chelisa Grimes, who got Darnell the stun gun after she says school officials failed to respond to the family's complaints about bullying. "They really kicked him out." Darnell may appeal the decision, but says he's undecided.
