Move over Johnny Bench, pranksters load Fargo ballpark with desks

FARGO – You’ve heard of ballpark franks.

Well, what about ballpark pranks?

Fargo police had one on their hands Friday morning when they received a report of school desks scattered strategically around Jack Williams Stadium in north Fargo.

Police Lt. Joel Vettel said it appears the incident was a senior prank involving Shanley High School students.

He said seniors at Shanley have a tradition of committing mischief involving a particular teacher’s classroom and the school has traditionally winked at the shenanigans.

Vettel said school officials have contacted those believed responsible for taking desks off school grounds and the pranksters have agreed to return the desks to the school.

No charges are expected, he added.
