First of all, that was a very rude and immature thing to do. I'm not trying to lecture you, but stop calling people names. It doesn't make you cool. If you know you're bein' a jerk, then stop being a jerk!
That aside, I'm here to help. If she stopped eating for a week because of ONE comment, obviously she had some other issues before this happened. People don't do things this drastic because of one high school jerk. This girl has probably been bullied a lot for her weight, or has had issues in her childhood linking to her appearance. (all the more reason you shouldn't make fun of her!)
Soo, number one- you won't get in trouble with the law. The school will probably be mad at you, might have a talk with you, might write you up or suspend you. Depends on your school. But this is really not a police issue.
Second of all, stop making fun of people and you won't have this problem! You gotta grow up, girls don't like bullies!

There is really nothing that can be legally done. Her mother can complain to school officials, they'll tell you to stop talking about her. That's about it unless you continue and the comments are directed to her, then she can get several complaints on you, that'll prove 'Harassment', then she can call the police. If it was only one time all she can do is call the school. The girl should really have 'thicker skin'! If she got that upset because you said she was fat, maybe she's concerned with what YOU think of her.

The school resource officer might have a word with you about it but that is about it.

Nothing will happen.Source(s): ....I am a retired police officer. I retired as a sergeant, after 29 years, from a very large department, about 12,000 officers. I was a patrol officer for 4 years in a very diverse area. I was a tactical officer in the high rise project areas of my city. We called it vertical patrol in that we walked the the stairways of the high rises most of the time. I did that for 5 years and was promoted by test to detective. I worked violent crime (homicide, sex, officer involved shootings, robbery, kidnapping, serious non property incidents) for 11 years until I was promoted to sergeant. I worked as a street supervisor, a bicycle patrol supervisor and a desk sergeant/watch commander. During my time as a tactical officer and a detective I was a unit representative for the police union. I have a B.A in English and an M.S. in Law Enforcement Administration....
