“How is it theft if he paid for it?” Koller’s mother, Carrie Koller Waller, wrote in a Facebook post. “It’s food. FOOD!!! Not weapons. Not drugs. Not alcohol. Not cheating on a test. … I am shaking my head over this and not sure what to do. Laugh, punish, argue, dress him up as a nugget bandit, or let it go.” School officials initially said Koller had stolen the nugget, but a screenshot posted by Waller on Facebook showed her son had been charged three times for the lunch — one extra lunch charge of $2.75, one lunch entree charge of $2.50, and another charge of $2.75.
He doesn’t look like a bandit.
