(WBIR) More than 100 students won’t be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies after trashing the halls of their Tennessee high school.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has been asked by 10th Judicial District Attorney General Steve Crump to look into last month’s mass vandalism by students at Sequoyah High School in Madisonville.
Students wrote on walls with shaving cream, scattered hay throughout the building, broke podiums, urinated on the floors and placed a dead animal in the hallway.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office was investigating the case but has stepped out because one of its deputies was a school resource officer at the school, according to the TBI’s Susan Niland. The deputy, James Fischer, was fired by the sheriff because the sheriff said Fischer hadn’t been truthful about being present at the school during times when the vandalism was occurring late April 29 and early April 30.
School officials have described it as a senior prank that got out of hand, and the school’s principal has been suspended without pay.
