The officer discovered that what at first appeared to be a vehicle crashed into the school was actually a clever prank by high school senior students who graduate this weekend, police Chief Rick Rieper said.
Not everyone loves a good senior prank, but apparently a high school in Wisconsin does.
Cumberland High School's class of 2018 made a fake hole out of tape and black tarp on the side of the building, then attached old bricks and a junker whose back read "CHS Class of 2018". Congratulation (sic) Class of 2018 on one of best senior pranks that Cumberland High School has seen. They created the illusion that a auto had crashed into their school, TMJ4 reports - and the school staff wasn't even mad.
The cops also probably appreciated the fact that the students didn't deface any school property or release wild animals into the halls for the stunt.
Cumberland High School students went above and beyond with their senior prank.
"We didn't want to be there long because we didn't want to attract attention", Pasko said, the Pioneer Press reported. So the school was not damaged at all and police were quite impressed.
"It looked very, very real", Principal Ritchie Narges told WTMJ-TV.
"Congratulations to all the seniors who are graduating", the police said in their Facebook post.
When the Cumberland Police Department received a phone call Monday morning, it sounded like a serious situation.
