WELDON SPRING, Mo. (KMOX) — A prank, that’s an annual right of passage for some St. Charles County high school students, now may result in serious criminal charges.

Every year, right before graduation, it’s been an unofficial — and definitely unsanctioned — tradition for seniors at Francis Howell High School to paint up a section of Highway 94, near where it passes by their campus at the intersection of Highway D.

But police say four students went too far last night, when they poured a giant puddle of paint onto the roadway. francis howell Students May Face Felony Charges for Senior PrankKMOV reports that the prank ruined the finish of several vehicles that splashed through the mess. MoDOT had to dispatch a special cleaning crew to mop up.

St. Charles County Sheriff’s deputies say the price tag for fixing all those cars — plus the manpower needed to clean the road — might result in felony charges for the students.
