Is this a harmless prank ... or a criminal act?
Exchanging gifts and pranks is a tradition among Texas high school dance and cheerleading teams before football games. But the parents from Andress High School in El Paso said putting poison and laxatives in brownies and cupcakes and giving them to unwitting rivals is well beyond a prank.
"We felt like they weren't out just to play a prank," she said. "With all the stuff they put in there, it is like they were trying to kill them."
Chapin officials released a statement saying the incident is being investigated and any students found to be involved will face appropriate discipline. A police spokesman said no reports had been made yet.
El Paso Independent School District officials Tuesday said that three members of the Chapin Sapphire Dance Team were suspended for three days and will face further punishment after admitting that they baked laxative-laced brownies for the Andress High School Dance team.
Do you think these cheerleaders went too far?
