After sending her son to school with a grenade meant for a D-Day presentation, Lisa Miguel, 44, has been charged with “risk of injury to a minor, reckless endangerment, and illegal possession of an explosive,” according to WTNH.

The grenade, said to be a “dud,” was a gift from the boy’s grandfather to Miguel. She gave her 11-year-old son the grenade to take to Stratford Academy in Connecticut for a class on World War II.

The school was put on lockdown, and a bomb squad finally confirmed that it was indeed a dud, used in practice drills.
