Today, Brendan was paddled in school for having his video game out in class (see Double Fault, Single Pay? for full details). His dad will have to have a visit with the principal and Brendan to discuss the reasons for the rules about electronics at school before the game can be returned to him. Mr. Jones won't be able to keep that appointment until next week. He wasn't worried about that, since he was pretty upset at Brendan. Not only was Brendan not supposed to have the game at school at all, but it was supposed to be locked up after he finished with his screen time the day previous.
Which is why he's calling you.
It turns out that the game that the principal is holding actually belongs to Van.
Mr. Jones informs you of the situation and asks you to check with Van about why Brendan had his game. Brendan said they were discussing some esoteric Pokemon details, and Van was showing him examples when the bell rang. He let Brendan keep the game until the end of the day to look at it. Besides the paddling he received at school, Brendan is also in trouble at home for breaking his screen time agreement. He wants to confirm the story before he makes any decision. He also wants to know if Van is going to be in any trouble, and if you have any thoughts on how to deal with Brendan, or if things should be worse because he got someone else's game taken up.
For the record, Van knows the rules about having his game out at school, after the first bell rings, but you don't have any strict rules about him taking it, as long as he follows the school rules.
