Line Taken From "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" Taken To Be A Gun Threat, Schools On Lock-Down

There was a very serious misunderstanding in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. All the schools in The County were ordered to go on lock-down for about twenty minutes while police searched for a nineteen year old Ambridge Area High School student.  His voicemail of him singing "The Fresh prince of Bel-Air" song was taken as a gun threat.

The line "Shooting some b-ball outside of the school" was mistaken to say "shooting some people outside of the school".

A receptionist had called the boy to remind him of an eye doctor's appointment.  When the teacher had heard this she immediately called the police, all of the schools were then told to go on lock-down and the boy was apprehended and taken into custody.

After explaining the situation the police found out that it was in fact the boy rapping to the intro of the 90's T.V. series.

"It gave us a wonderful chance to review the emergency procedures," said Superintendent  Erv Weischedel.  "It was a good drill that went very, very well.
