Schools locked down because of Fresh Prince theme song voicemail

AMBRIDGE — Beaver County schools had their lives “flipped, turned upside down” Thursday morning when a phone greeting involving the theme song from the 1990s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was taken as a threat. 

Apparently, someone misheard “shooting some b-ball outside of the school” as “shooting some people outside of the school” and freaked out.

Handcuffed driver

  A Pennsylvania woman has been ordered to stand trial on charges she stole a police cruiser (also she stole earrings from a Kohl’s store) and led officers on a chase of at least 80 mph — while her hands were cuffed behind her. Everyday I see women drivers that can’t drive with two hands but that girl is unique.

Beaver Elementary School- Beaver, IA

After the spring warmth comes and melts away the snow, but before the weeds can plant their roots and the shrubs fill their twigs with foliage, this three story school house bares all. 

What was once a bustling school in rural Boone county, now stands only as a dilapidated reminder of its former life. Classrooms now lie in a pile of rubble in the basement; shards of blackboards litter the lowest floor.
