    Boy's attorney said the student was threatened with being cited for truancy if he left.

    A 12-year-old Houston-area boy who allegedly was barred from leaving class to use the bathroom has gotten into trouble for urinating in a water bottle.

    An attorney says the boy's family has appealed the penalty of a month at an alternative campus.

    Klein Independent School District officials say protocol must be followed in disciplinary matters and declined further comment.

    The Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday that a teacher on Jan. 13 repeatedly denied permission for a restroom break during class.

    Attorney Bill Hawkins says the boy, whose name hasn't been released, was threatened with being cited for truancy if he left.

    Hawkins says the boy slipped a water bottle into his pants leg, urinated, then placed the bottle in his jacket pocket. The bottle fell out before class ended.
