WINONA, Minn. (WCCO) — A 9-year-old boy was suspended last week after he mimicked Michael Jackson’s crotch grab during a rendition of “Billie Jean” at school.

Lenny Boberg was performing at a St. Stanislaus lip-sync fundraiser on Thursday and imitated the dancer’s signature move several times.

The principal, Pat Bowlin, then approached Boberg and his mother after the performance, allegedly saying it was inappropriate and the boy was now suspended.

Bowlin said Sunday that the story is not complete, but because of legal issues, he cannot comment beyond that.

He said he asked the Boberg family to meet with him at school at 8 a.m. on Monday to discuss the incident.

He also added they told the Bobergs to bring Lenny and have him “prepared to go to school.”
