This is a lesson to all graduating classes that even a seemingly mild prank can lead to life changing consequences:
A group of teenagers accused of releasing more than 70,000 ladybirds in a US high school as a graduation prank have been taught a tough lesson.
The seven males are now facing criminal charges following their alleged stunt at Chopticon High School in Morganza, Maryland, last week, police say.
The St Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that students arrived at the high school on May 20 to find thousands of ladybirds (called ladybugs in the US) swarming through the hallways.
“I saw one ladybug just pass me, and then, all of a sudden, there was like 1000,” a student, Trinity Alexander, told Fox 5.
An investigation revealed that, about 3.40am that day, five people who had concealed their identities with masks and hooded jumpers forced open a door at the high school, while two others waited in a getaway car.
Fox 5 reported that six of the group were students, who were were graduating this year, and one was a former student.
