Students facing list of charges

Actions not a prank

        INDIAN HILL — Four Indian Hill High School students are facing a string of misdemeanor charges, accused of crippling a fleet of school buses, causing classes in the district to be canceled Friday.

        Alan English, Jeremy Hamilton and Jeremy Isles, all 18, and a juvenile have been charged with criminal mischief, criminal damaging and criminal trespass. The three 18-year-olds are seniors at Indian Hill High and the unidentified juvenile is a junior.

        Police accuse the students of entering the school bus compound last week and deflating the tires on 26 of the school district's buses.

        There was no other damage to the buses, Indian Hill Superintendent David Quattrone, said.

        “The students involved have been suspended for 10 days with a recommendation for expulsion,” he said. “We certainly don't classify it as a prank. It's obviously a crime.”

        School district officials worked with the Indian Hill Rangers to identify the students. The case was solved through a combination of voluntary disclosure and investigation, officials said.

        “It goes beyond a prank,” said Mark Milliron, a communications officer with the Indian Hill Rangers. “If it was a prank, they wouldn't have been charged.”

        The seniors involved also may be barred from graduation or senior week activities, Mr. Quattrone said.
