SAN CARLOS PARK - A student gets caught with a fake dollar bill at school.

The boy says he got the bill from home. He planned to use the money to buy a Mother's Day gift at the school bookstore.

A bookkeeper at San Carlos Park Elementary says the bill was glued together and had uneven cuts on the end.

No word on if the student or his family will be in trouble.
