A Minnesota high school has expelled a student for the remainder of the year after school officials discovered a pocket knife in her purse earlier this month.

Alyssa Drescher, 17, says that she was subject to a random search ten days ago after a drug dog mistook her perfume for a hit at United South Central High School.

“They smelled perfume, and they had to check my purse,” she told WCCO-TV.

When authorities looked through her purse they discovered a pocket knife the junior says she had used on her boyfriend’s farm for chores, but simply forgotten to remove.

“It was a mistake,” she said. “Everyone makes mistakes.”

Her explanation didn’t seem to matter Thursday night.

School officials contended their zero tolerance policy didn’t leave them any choice but to issue a 12-month expulsion.
