All over a misunderstanding...
WPXI reports that schools in Beaver County were on lockdown Thursday after someone misheard a student's voicemail.
A worker was calling to confirm a doctor's appointment with an Ambridge High School student when they heard the theme song to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The worker said she called police when she thought she heard "shooting people outside of school." The actual lyrics are "shooting some b-ball outside of school."
The district was forced into lockdown for about 30 minutes and police detained the 19-year-old student for three hours while searching his locker. They eventually figured out it was a misunderstanding.
Ambridge, Pennsylvania officer Mike Natale said: "He was afraid and embarrassed. Obviously staff at the doctor's office was embarrassed about the whole thing too."
