RUSHVILLE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – A senior prank lands a student in jail.

Rushville High Senior Tyell Morton said he thought it would be funny to put a blow up doll in a girl's bathroom at his school. But the act was caught on the school’s security cameras.

Video shows a man dressed in a hooded sweatshirt wearing latex gloves and concealing a package. But then leaves the bathroom without it.

School officials thought a bomb was in that package and evacuated the whole school while they called in the Indiana State Police Bomb Squad.

When it was discovered that it was Tyell who pulled the prank, he was arrested and now faces criminal charges.

Tyell will not be allowed to attend his graduation and is banned from campus.

If convicted, he could face up to eight years in prison.
