NYC teens arrested for laxative prank

  |   June 18, 2008 at 10:34 AM
NEW YORK, June 18 (UPI) -- New York City police say they arrested three teenagers who allegedly served cake laced with laxatives to the faculty at their Brooklyn high school.

The three seniors face possible assault charges after the prank sickened five unwitting staff members, two of whom were hospitalized.

The cake was served at a party last week at the Brooklyn School for Global Studies. The New York Daily News said no one was suspicious because the alleged pranksters included a straight-A cheerleader.

Some of the teachers told the Daily News they were saddened by the incident because they had felt close to the students this year.
