Phony 'students' arrested

The Associated Press

LANCASTER - Two men who tried to pass as students at a central Ohio high school were jailed on charges including disorderly conduct, trespassing and inducing panic.

Lancaster High School was evacuated for about an hour as a result of the prank allegedly attempted Thursday morning by Nathan Shahan, 20, and Anthony Bobo, 21.

Shahan and Bobo went to the school posing as students, to see if anyone would notice that they didn't belong. They told police they had entered other high schools without being noticed.

A teacher stopped Shahan as he tried to enter the school, and the two got into a scuffle, Phalen said. Sheriff's deputies found Bobo inside the school at 7:45 a.m.

Bobo was charged with a felony count of inducing panic for being inside the school. He was also charged with misdemeanor counts of possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia and violating probation.

Shahan was charged with a felony count of parole violation and misdemeanor counts of assault and underage alcohol consumption.

Bond was set at $50,000 each.
