ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – A traditional high school homecoming prank left a south St. Louis County man in the ICU of a local hospital and a teenager facing possible charges.
Late Sunday night, Oakville High School juniors were kicking off homecoming week by egging the homes of seniors. While four of them were egging a home on Southwind Meadows Court, the homeowner heard them and came outside to stop them.
According to various reports, the 48-year-old man was standing in front of the teens’ car when the car nudged him. The man raised something in his hand and the driver hit the gas, running over the man and dragging him about 50 feet.
The man is expected to survive. The car’s driver, a juvenile, was taken into custody. The family court will determine if he’ll be charged.
The incident prompted the cancellation of Monday’s powder-puff football game. This weekend’s football game and dance are still on.
