MADISONVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - One hundred Sequoyah High School seniors are not being allowed to graduate and a school resource officer has been fired after a senior prank got out of control.

WVLT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1c6eWaA) the prank was organized by a group of students on social media who showed up around midnight on Thursday with glitter, balloons, toilet paper and fishing wire.

Officer James Fisher let the students in the building but then left, according to a statement from Monroe County Sheriff Tommy Jones.

Meanwhile, more and more students arrived. Some began overturning garbage cans, stealing from lockers and destroying property. Students say some people urinated on the walls and put ketchup and baby oil on them. Others released crickets and chickens in the hallways and left a dead possum in the building.
