Booker News: School Goes Into Lock Down Over “Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” Theme Song
It was hard to escape the 1990s without memorizing the theme song to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. But clearly, one woman in Pennsylvania missed out on the early charms of WILL SMITH. With RIDICULOUS results.
–On Friday, an employee at a doctor’s office in Ambridge, Pennsylvania was calling a high school student from Ambridge High School, to confirm his appointment. And the student used the “Fresh Prince” theme song as his voicemail message.
–But when the employee heard the lyric, “shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school,” she MISHEARD it as “shooting some PEOPLE outside of the school.” So she panicked and called 911.
–Then the ENTIRE SCHOOL DISTRICT got flip-turned upside-down . . . and every single school went into lockdown.
–The police arrested the student, and detained him for three hours while they searched his house and locker. When they finally sorted things out, they let him go.
–The doctor’s office says their employee is, quote, “embarrassed about the whole thing.”
