ST. ALBANS, VT. (AP) - A high school student found a used needle and syringe by the side of a road and jabbed eight fellow students over two days.
"He just walked up and stabbed me with a needle and said, 'You now have hepatitis,'" said student Ava Staples of the Bellows Free Academy. Students will be tested for hepatitis B and later for AIDS and hepatitis C.
The student, who threw the needle away, has been charged with eight counts of assault. The needle hasn't been recovered.
