AURORA, Illinois (AP) -- A high school senior accused of starting a massive food fight that left a police officer injured was among three students arrested in the prank...
The alleged instigator, Demetrius Oglesby, 18, faces a felony charge of resisting arrest after authorities said he ran from a police officer. The officer tripped over another student who had fallen during the food fight, breaking his foot. A school official also suffered minor injuries.
Two juveniles also face misdemeanor charges from the incident, including a 15-year-old charged with mob action and disorderly conduct and a 14-year-old charged with assault.
Students said rumors of the food fight had been circulating throughout the 3,000-student school all week as a senior prank.
"A prank is something that's funny and doesn't harm anything or anyone, but a food fight is entirely different -- a bad choice, bad judgment," said Principal John Glimco.
I'm not sure, but I think the worst thing about this entire situation is that they only found three students to bust.
