Teaneck Senior Prank Gone Wrong

Posted: Updated:
Teaneck, New Jesey(MY9NJ) - 63 Teaneck High School students are awaiting their fate after pulling an over-the-top senior prank on May 1st. The group of students were arrested while fleeing from the school after police responded in the wee hours of the night to find desks flipped over, graffiti on walls, hot dogs taped to lockers, streamers and balloons in the halls and what they say was urine all over the hallways.

All 63 students, which is 16% of the senior class, are being charged with criminal mischief and burglary. 24 of the students are over 18 and will be treated as adults in court.

Joe Gonzalez is a parent to one of the Teaneck students in trouble for the prank and while he does not condone the behavior of the teens, he thinks that they shouldn’t be punished too harshly.

“I think they did a horrible thing, but I think that punishment would be a little bit much because a lot of seniors do different kind of pranks through senior year and I hear this goes on at the school,” he explained.

Over the weekend school officials have responded and said that the destruction has been blown out of proportion. The superintendent confirmed that there was no damage to the facility, furniture or equipment and the staff found no indication of urine.

The case has since been transferred to the Bergen County Prosecutors Office and moving forward it will be treated as one large case which has the potential to get downgraded to a disorderly person’s offense.

Yesterday a rally took place outside of the United Nations building in New York City and people from both sides were on hand to voice their concerns about the ongoing airstrikes. New Jersey’s Rabbi Gross discussed the fact that many of his former students, after graduation, decided to join the Israeli Defense Force and are now immersed in the fighting.
