Siegel High School vandalized for senior prank

Posted: Updated: May 17, 2014 12:01 PM
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The floors at Siegel High School in Murfreesboro were coated with cooking oil as part of a senior class prank overnight Thursday.

Police responded to the school just after Midnight to find as many as 200 students “decorating the school as a senior prank,” according to the Murfreesboro police report.

The report stated the school was “toilet papered and ransacked” but there were no obvious signs of physical damage.

According to the report, a teacher in the school reported the students were allowed into the building but took the prank “too far.”

Pictures posted on social media show desks and chairs in hallways and an amphitheater in the school’s courtyard flooded with soapy water.

While many of the students ran while police arrived, police manage to catch 50 to 75 juveniles and made them cleanup their mess.

The students were then released to their parents.

Seth Harrell, a senior at the school, said a couple of bad apples took the prank too far. 

"You're always going to have people who take it way too far and that's what [brought] this entire prank down," said Harrell.

School opened as scheduled Friday but due to safety concerns that presumably arose with the oil on the floors after classes began, students were dismissed at 11 a.m.

Rutherford County Schools’ spokesperson James Evans told News 2 the school will be fully cleaned in time for school to reopen as scheduled on Monday.

No charges have been filed at this time, but the incident remains under investigation.

School officials told News 2 those teachers who were there at the time of the prank will not be facing any disciplinary action.  However, for those students who took part in the vandalism, it could affect them from graduating on May 27.

    (CNN) - When many people sneeze, it's instinctive for others to respond by offering a "bless you" in the person's direction. That gesture got a Tennessee student kicked out of class this week after violating a classroom rule.
