Again, back to my "suffering the consequences because you made a stupid decision" point/idea. Usually arrests (without trials and such, unless they're big things like murder) don't show up on records that will directly impact them.

The article didn't tell how the story ended after her arrest but I imagine that's where she was sent. I probably should mention that when she was "arrested," she was likely cuffed and just sent home to her parents. The article didn't exactly clarify, but "arrested" seems much more dramatic than what actually may have happened.

1) It's a law that you have to attend school until you're at least, what 15 or 16?

2) Usually truancy cases just end with students being sent back to their school or parents (if off grounds) or just asked to go to class. In modern truancy, it takes a few offences before you're actually persecuted.

3) Officers in school are usually not in charge of truancy either. If the school notices you've been absent from classes a significant number of times, it becomes their job to file truancy charges, not the police officers.
