(Lansing State Journal) A Howell High School student and his mother are recounting an October 2010 classroom incident — which they said they never expected to “go past the classroom” but quickly became national news — in an online video posted Wednesday.

“There was Mr. (Jay) McDowell on the news saying that (Daniel Glowacki) came into the classroom spewing homophobic and racial slurs,” said Sandra Glowacki, mother of Howell student Daniel Glowacki, in the video published on the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance’s Web site.

“And I’m listening, and I’m like, ‘That’s not what happened,’ ” she continued.
