Seven high school seniors pulled off a prank of epic proportions, but were caught and now will have to pay the price!
The senior students, who attend East Carter High School in Grayson, Kentucky, unleashed an estimated 10,000 crickets into the school's halls.
The principal claims there are still crickets hiding in the nooks and crannies of the school, and the extermination of the crickets has been very costly!
Here's what the school board said in a statement:
"It is the stance of the Carter County School District that these actions, while meant to be a prank of sorts, are unacceptable."
And not only were the students banned, but each of them will have to pay a $600 fine to pay for the exterminator's fees!
Some of the other students though are upset their friends are being punished!
Here's what one student said:
"Graduation is one of those lifetime milestones and these kids with no previous records of any sort, I think it's a little overreaching."
Another student said:
"We've been to school with them since we were in diapers. It's not fair to us to not have them there with us."
We agree the punishment may be harsh, but if you can't do the time then don't do the crime!!
