Students at Teaneck High School woke up Thursday morning to find out more than 60 of their classmates had been arrested overnight.
The reason? For attempting to pull a prank of epic proportions inside the school’s walls that included littering the halls with blown-up balloons, smearing Vasoline on door handles, flipping desks and urinating on the floors.
The punch line for the prank couldn’t be enjoyed, however, as police caught the students in the act, arresting more than 60 teens in the middle of the night and charging many with burglary and criminal mischief.
While the prank may have been conceived as a harmless joke – no one was hurt – did it go too far? Are senior pranks getting out of hand? What can be done to curb the annual tradition at many schools?
