Nathan Entingh, 10, was suspended from school last week for pointing his finger like a gun.

The kindergarten crime? Carrying a “level 2 lookalike firearm,”according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Devonshire Alternative Elementary School principal Patricia Price says she had already “warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year.”

But Nathan’s father, Paul Entingh, says he checks his son’s book bag on a “daily basis” and says as far as a notice from the school he “hasn’t received anything. No notice, phone calls, letters, nothing.”

School district spokesman Jeff Warner said Entingh “put his finger to the side of another student’s head and pretended to shoot.” He added, “The kids were told, ‘If you don’t stop doing this type of stuff, there will be consequences.”

Paul Entingh, responded saying his son was “just playing.” Paul went on to say that the suspension “would make more sense maybe if [Nathan] brought a plastic gun that looked like a real gun or something, but it was his finger.”
