SMITHS STATION, AL (WTVM) - Smiths Station High School is investigating a senior prank happening on school grounds.
Images surfacing on social media show explicit language written on school buildings and buses.
Principal Joaquin Richards says the administration has a list of names of suspected people involved and they are calling them into the office for questioning.
Richards also said a custodian was hurt in an on-the-job accident and was transported to the hospital. Richards says the custodian was cleaning things up and she slipped and fell.
Sheriff Jay Jones says the damage is "superficial" meaning there is a lot of things that can be cleaned up, a vending machine was flipped over, but other than that most costly would probably be the spray paint on buses, buildings.
Sheriff also said there was a live chicken inside the school today when staff arrived.
Smiths Station Mayor Bubba Copeland is asking the community to consider the students' and teacher's feelings in the following statement:
