Littleton Colorado Senior Prank Backfires homepage homepage

Four students have been suspended for three days, and several others disciplined, after posting “false and defamatory” statements, cell phone numbers and personal information about their teachers on, an online dating service. The fake online profiles were very amusing until the teachers started getting weird calls, especially the married ones. Students involved in the prank were made to apologize to teachers, take the information down and obtain official permission to walk in their graduation.

A longstanding tradition among graduating seniors, the senior prank is often meant to be funny, and is carried out with the best of intentions, but as often as not, it results in suspension, being barred from graduation and even arrest. A look in photos at some other senior pranks that went awry.
