CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) - A 12-year-old Chula Vista boy who spit out of a school bus window faces a misdemeanor battery charge because the spit went through the sun roof of a sport utility vehicle and landed on a man and his daughter.

Michael Crowe tells KGTV in San Diego that he was spitting out a wad of gum because it didn't taste good. Crowe was suspended from Eastlake Middle School for five days after the January incident. He was later transferred to another school.

Police tell the station their investigation shows Crowe was intentionally spitting at cars.

Michael's mother, Lisa, is appealing the charge, saying there is no proof her son was deliberately aiming at anyone or anything.

Chula Vista is about 10 miles south of San Diego.
