From the Facebook page of WBFF FOX 45 in Baltimore:

First on Fox: 7-year-old Joshua was suspended this morning from Park Elementary School in Brooklyn Park. Joshua says he was eating a pastry during snack time and trying to shape it into a mountain, the teacher said it looked like a gun and took him to the principal's office. Joshua's parents were called, he has been suspended for two days. Joshua's father says it's ridiculous since no one was threatened or harmed by the pastry. A letter will be going home to all students of Park Elementary School this afternoon. School officials declined to comment due to privacy issues. Kathleen Cairns Fox Baltimore spoke to the family and will have the full story on FOX45 News at 5 and 5:30.

Emphasis added. And I really don't know what else I could add to that.

Few details seem to be available so far, so more on this later when the full scope of the stupidity is known.
