An assistant school principal is traumatized after receiving mail packages containing poop, police in Maryland said.

Berlin Police said that they arrested and charged a Stephen Decatur High School student on Monday, after being accused of mailing three packages containing animal waste.

The 12th grader mailed the packages to Mark Flynn, according to a spokesperson for the Worcester County Schools.

The student has been punished with a suspension of 10 days, which is the maximum amount of time a student may be suspended. Investigators said that they have no idea why Flynn was targeted.

Police arrested and charged the boy with three counts of disturbing activities at school and three counts of molesting a school administrator.

The student admitted to sending the packages, telling police it was dog and cow poop. In an unrelated charge, the boy was charged with possession of alcohol after police found a large amount of alcohol in his car.

The U.S. Postal Service said that it will not press federal charges against the boy because he is already being prosecuted by local police.
