Mike’s the Stupid News: ‘Fresh Prince’ Theme Triggers School Lockdown
Now this is the story all about how, this teen’s life got flipped, turned upside down. A Pittsburgh high school was put on lock-down last week after a student’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air voice-mail message got mistaken for a threat! 19 year-old Travis Clawson had an eye appointment scheduled, and when the receptionist called to confirm, she thought Clawson’s voice message said something to the effect of, quote, “I can’t come to the phone right now, because I’ll be shooting some people outside of my school.’
She called the cops, his school was put on alert and Clawson was arrested. But as it turns out, Clawson, w ho has a speech impediment, was actually quoting part of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song which says, “shooting some b-ball outside of the school.” The teen was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, and the doctor’s office apologized for the misunderstanding.
