A second-grade boy has been suspended from a Colorado elementary school for throwing an imaginary grenade during a game of make-believe with his classmates Friday.

Alex Evans, 7, who attends Mary Blair Elementary in Loveland, said he was playing a game called Rescue the World.

“I was trying to save people and I just can’t believe I got dispended,” Alex told KDVR.com.

The school has a list of absolutes that states no weapons, real or imaginary, and no fighting.

“Honestly I don’t think the rule is very realistic for kids this age,” Alex’s mom, Mandie Evans, told KDVR.

Alex’s mom said he’ll be playing at home from now on while she and the school work things out. A phone call to the school was not immediately returned.
