Student clock maker pulled from school

The Muslim student from Texas who was arrested for bringing a clock to class was pulled out of school.

- The Muslim student from Texas who was arrested for bringing a clock to class was pulled out of school. Ahmed Mohammaed, 14, was suspended for three days earlier this month after a teacher mistook the clock for a bomb. The boy’s father says he is having trouble eating and sleeping. He also pulled Ahmed's siblings out of the school. 

MOhammed became a sensation on social media Wednesday and got an invitation to the White House after word spread that he had been placed in handcuffs and suspended for coming to class with a homemade clock that school officials thought resembled a bomb.

Police declined to seek any charges against Mohamed, but his arrest and suspension ignited a wave of criticism of police and the school and raised suspicions that they had overreacted because of the boy's religion.
