Police praise students for one of the "best senior pranks" they've seen
Senior pranks are a rite of passage for many high school students across America. Before school lets out for summer and the graduating class leaves the halls of their high school forever, seniors take one last jab at their teachers and principals.
A group of seniors in Cumberland, Wisconsin, left their mark with what the police department called "one of best senior pranks that Cumberland High School has seen."
When grown-ups arrived at the scene, they discovered a what looked like a car crash right through the front of the high school, leaving the back of a car sticking out of a gaping hole in the building. Photos that the school and police department shared are jarring at first — but the accident is completely fake.
On closer inspection, teachers noticed it was only a half of a car, likely from a junk yard, placed in front of a black tarp that looked like a giant hole in the wall. Loose bricks were strewn across the scene, as if the car really had barreled right into the school. The group staged the "accident" right outside of the principal's office, the school district said.
In true senior prank fashion, the windows of the car were decorated with messages saying, "C-ya May 19, 2018!" and "CHS Class of 2018 We're Bustin Out."
