Police: student sold classmate drugs to assist with suicide
BATON ROUGE - Police arrested a teen boy after a classmate told a nurse at Belaire High School, she tried to commit suicide with drugs she bought from him in the cafeteria Friday.
The girl, who was not identified in a police report obtained by WBRZ News 2, sought help after she had a bad reaction from what is described by police as a Z-Bar, or Xanax. She said she bought a pill from Ulysses Bush for $5.
Bush was charged with various drug offenses, including selling drugs at school and trespassing since police said he ran onto private property to try and escape from them when they attempted to arrest him. Before he was caught, officers reported he threw out a bag of 17 pills.
Bush is 17-years-old.
