A New Hampshire dad was arrested at a school board meeting after protesting a book assigned to his teen daughter that contained what he said was a graphic sex scene.
William Baer attended a Gilford School Board meeting on Monday night where he raised concerns over the Jodi Picoult book "Nineteen Minutes," and in doing so, apparently violated the board's two-minute talk rule.
The book tells the story of a bullied teen who eventually goes on a shooting rampage at his school. The book also contains a sex scene between two teenagers, which Baer thought was inappropriate.
Baer reportedly asked the school board members if they would read the sex scene out loud, but they refused.
