5 teens arrested for school vandalism prank

St. Petersburg, Florida -- Five teenagers arrested after vandalizing more than 200 doors, windows and vending machines at a high school.

This happened overnight at Dixie Hollins High School on 62nd Street North in St. Petersburg.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says the five teens consisted of boys and girls who "tagged" the school in what appears to be part of a senior prank.

The taggings -- done with permanent multi-colored markers -- included markings such as "2014" and "Seniors Rule," as well as vulgar messages.

The teens reportedly told deputies some of them were scheduled to graduate on Tuesday and that they wanted to "go out with a bang."
