Is This The Craziest Prank Ever? Student Arrested For Mailing Poop To Vice Principal
On May 5, 2014, a 12th grade student was arrested for mailing poop to school’s vice principal. His name will not be revealed, since he’s still a minor. This happened in Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, Worcester County, Maryland. Maybe mailing poop just once could pass as immature or even “awesome” act, depending on the point of view. However, this teen was mailing poop repeatedly – he just didn’t know when to stop.
On April 30, Mark Flynn, the school’s vice principal, told a sheriff’s deputy he’d received a package containing “some sort of excrement”. As it turned out it was a cow and dog poop. Two days later, two more packages came. The Post Office employees were warned by the police immediately after the first package. So, the postal inspector expected this sort of thing. When he saw a young man leaving a package, he reacted quickly and wrote down the teen’s license plate number. The student was silly enough to send all the packages personally. All this led to the poop mailer’s home.
He was arrested and charged with three counts of disturbing activities at school, three counts of molesting a school administrator, and underage alcohol possession. Molestation in this case doesn’t mean “sexual molestation”, but maliciously bothering someone. Also, not only the student sent three packages of poop to the vice principal, but he was found with a large quantity of booze in his car, too.
The student was punished with a 10 day suspension, which is the harshest non-expulsion penalty in school. The school’s employees are afraid this might lead to other pranks like this one, so they want to prevent it with harsh punishment. Barb Witherow, a spokeswoman for Worcester County Schools, said: “We do promote a respectful and positive learning environment. Any inappropriate or disruptive or illegal activity is not acceptable.”
According to the police, vice principal and spokeswoman, the reasons for this demeanor still remain unknown. The Postal Service won’t pursue federal charges against the student. They think it enough he’s being prosecuted locally.
We can’t seem to find other cases of this kind that happened in the US. However, a pretty stupid prank was pulled quite recently in New Jersey. If you really can’t help yourself and simply “have” to pull a prank, avoid this one as well. 62 high school seniors from New Jersey were arrested for breaking into the school, peeing all over the hallways and ransacking the classrooms.
