Michigan students ‘toothpick’ football field

I came across the story the other day and wanted to pass it along.

A group of high school students in Michigan from Oscoda High School confessed to planting 5,000 toothpicks into the field of rival Tawas Area.

Unfortunately, the prank didn’t result in just a laugh. It forced Tawas Area to move their game 37 miles away and refund $1,000 dollars in ticket sales.

Police said this apparently was a prank by non-football team members played way over the top in retaliation for Tawas’ ”forking” and spray-painting at Oscoda’s field.

The article also said the five pranksters could face criminal charges.

So what do you think of this prank? All in good fun or bad taste?

Also what are some of the best high-school pranks you can remember?
