‘Fresh Prince’ Theme Song Locks Down School
As crazy as this may sound, a ring tone on a student’s cell phone shut down a school in Pennsylvania!
A nurse at a doctor’s office was calling a student to confirm an appointment; that student’s “ring-back” tone was the theme song to “Fresh Prince of Bel-air”, which contains the lyrics “shooting some b-ball outside of the school”. The nurse thought that the lyrics said “shooting somepeople outside of the school”, so she called the police.
The police put the school on lock-down, assessed the situation, made certain that there was no threat, and then laughed like little children when they realized what had happened. Parents just don’t understand!
