Hog manure covers high school; seniors arrested

        HAMILTON — As pranks go, this one was a stinker: A group of Badin High School students dumped a large load of hog manure in and around the school early Wednesday, police said.

        “They dumped it in the driveway, threw it on the doors and on the light fixtures,” said Sgt. Tom Kilgour, Hamilton police spokesman.

        The vandalism also included paintball damage on the front doors and “an obscene flag was hung on the flagpole,” a report says.

        Three students were arrested Wednesday and more arrests are expected, Sgt. Kilgour said. School officials said at least a dozen students were involved.

        A trio of 18-year-olds — Christopher Flick, Adam Weber and Alex Spaulding — face misdemeanor charges of criminal damaging, police records show. They are scheduled to appear May 25 in Hamilton Municipal Court.

        A police officer discovered the damage just after midnight Wednesday. The Hamilton Fire Department helped school officials clean up the mess, said Frank Margello, assistant principal.

        “It was a senior prank, no doubt,” Mr. Margello said. “This was a bit on the extreme side for a senior prank.”
