MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A well-known high school rivalry prank may have gone too far.
On Wednesday, May 8, two schools in Mobile County started their day off having to clean up vandalism. LeFlore High School and Blount High School both had buildings that were spray painted.
It's something that happens every year. This year, however, things took a turn for the worse.
"Paper on the floor, eggs, ketchup, mustard - thrown against the glass and writing on the side of the building," said LeFlore Principal Alvin Dailey.
Much of what was found this has been cleaned at LeFlore High School, but Dailey said it was not a good way to start the day.
"It's disappointing. Here we are closing out the school year; today is the senior's last day. We want to make sure they get their tests passed, and we can graduate them on Monday," Dailey said.
In fact, Dailey said it very well may have been seniors who did it.
"Some people like to do what they call senior pranks. I call it stupidity for damaging a building when it's not necessary. Our people have work to do, and they have to take time to clean up the mess when they have other things to do," Dailey said.
Dailey said senior pranks happen every year, but this year with the spray paint is taking it a step further. The damage is the same at Blount. Spray paint is all over the courtyard. However, what the pranksters may have forgotten is there are cameras everywhere.
"We'll be pulling the cameras, taking a look, and if we get something that can give us some clear identification, we'll forward that to the proper personnel," Dailey said.
Those at Blount also said the acts were caught on camera. Dailey said there's nothing wrong with a little fun, but this is taking "senioritis" a little too far.
Dailey said police are not involved yet. Those with Blount High School said the same thing. Both schools said they are working to try to get things back to normal before graduation events start.
