Texas teen suing school officials over homemade clock charges

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Muslim teen is suing after being arrested for bringing a clock to a Texas high school. 

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, faced charges of a hoax bomb.

Mohamed says he wanted to show his teacher the homemade clock at the Dallas area school. 

While the charge was dropped, the school still suspended him. 

The family says school officials violated their son's civil rights. They're suing school officials and the city of Irving, Texas.

The family has since moved to Qatar after receiving threats and a scholarship offered to Mohamed.
