Three students from Brandeis High School were arrested earlier this month when an end-of-the-year graduation prank turned violent as school security got involved.
What was intended to be a harmless high school prank by graduating seniors got out of control as students crowded into the hallways of the high school tossing beach balls and chanting and yelling. Food began to be thrown and then administrators and school officers got involved, which resulted in the arrests of three students who have now been disallowed from attending their graduation ceremony.
While some reports from the school seem to indicate that the students who were arrested were violent troublemakers, postings on the Facebook page for the high school flash mob tell an opposing story, such as one account which said a largely distributed video on the news "doesn't show the full picture," and describes a fight between an arresting officer and a student as "excessive" on the part of the officer.
If charged, one of the students who was arrested could potentially face minor charges for assault, due to a broken finger that a teacher suffered, while the other students could potentially face minor charges.
