A Wyoming high school honor student was arrested and fined for refusing to wear a face mask.

Grace Smith, a 16-year-old at Laramie High School, was handcuffed Thursday and given a suspension and trespassing arrest for “continued willful disobedience.”

“They gave me a second $500 citation for trespassing after my suspension, and then proceeded to arrest me after putting the school in lockdown for an hour and a half,” Grace told Fox News.

For protesting the mask mandate, Grace was slapped with three separate two-day suspensions and received $1,000 in trespassing fines for refusing to leave the campus.

She ended with a quote from Benjamin Franklin about liberty and safety and said she would do it again if there weren’t death threats against her.

The Albany County School District’s mask mandate was put in place back in September but will be reviewed by the school board Friday.
