UPDATE: Senior prank could cost $10k

Posted: Updated:
UPDATE: Three teenagers are facing felony charges after being accused of vandalizing Seymour High School's new football field.
The "senior prank" could cost more than 10-thousand dollars.  Last week, Seymour High School officials say someone broke on to their new football field, and spray painted several parts in orange and black, which are the colors of the school's rival team.  And because the field is turf, some of the paint is permanent.      

Police arrested Joshua and Jacob Lewis-Jones and Jacob Shields.  Officials charged all three 18-year-olds with felony vandalism.  A preliminary hearing date for the three suspects is set for June 18th.

EVIER COUNTY, TN (WBIR) -- School officials believe a senior prank turned out costly, to the tune of more than $10,000.


Last week, Seymour High School officials say someone broke on to their new football field, and spray painted several parts in orange and black.

Tuesday, the maintenance department at the school tried to clean the paint. Because the school has a turf field, and it's made of plastic, some of the spray paint is permanent, meaning they have to replace some of the numbers and designs.

The athletic director says they only had the field for two months.
