Some seniors at Letcher County Central High School find themselves in trouble after a senior prank that some say got out of hand.
Police told WYMT's Peter O'Connor that a student at Letcher County Central High School set off a stink bomb in the hallway and bathroom.
When officials went to investigate the incident they say a food fight broke out in the schools cafeteria and it quickly got out of control.
Police say no arrests were made but six students were charged with multiple offenses from criminal mischief and in sighting-a-riot to assault.
“It was children involved in mischief, children are good children. The mischief that they were involved they took it a little too far and it resulted in some of those students receiving some charges from the court system,” Bert Slone, Letcher County Sheriff’s Dept.
School officials released this statement: “Thanks to closely supervising staff members, students who attempted last day pranks, were swiftly identified and issued the appropriate disciplinary consequences.”
For their role in the prank, police say three high school students will be in court next Friday
