Graduation ceremonies are occurring all over the country this week. Seniors are preparing to go off to college or into the workplace. But not without leaving something behind!
In Springfield, OH, four high school seniors were arrested last month for allegedly deflating the tires on a local school district’s entire fleet of buses. Deputies found that the valve stems from 24 school buses had been removed, which caused the tires to deflate. They even left a message written in multiple places on the asphalt that stated “You have been pranked by seniors 2015″ and To have school or to not have school?”. The damage caused the district to close schools on that Friday for its 2000 students.
In Prescott Valley, AZ, unknown suspects damaged 83 school buses rendering them unable to be used. The buses had “2015” painted on their windows. The bus’ tires were deflated and the valve stems were removed. There were indications that this act may have been perpetrated as a senior prank.
Senior pranks are a rite of passage. But at the expense of damaging property?
