Senior prank could lead to charges

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Students at George Whittell High School could face criminal charges following an apparent senior prank last week.

About 20 seniors came to the school about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday and began dousing students with squirt guns and water balloons, said Sgt. Jim Halsey in an email.

The incident scared some students who didn’t know if the guns were real firearms or squirt guns, Halsey said.

Deputy John Meyer, the high school’s resource office has written a report on the incident and has forwarded it to the Juvenile Probation Office and District Attorney’s Office for review.

Students could face charges of disturbing a school and damaging school property in relation to the prank, Halsey said.
