Clearly the principal of Georgia's Ola High School is not an Animal House fan. He got nine students jailed for staging a food fight in the cafeteria, and they're facing charges of disruption of public school, inciting a riot, failure to disperse, obstruction, and possession of marijuana (that last one's an oops). Since five of the pranksters are adults, this could go on their record. School officials found out about the shenanigans ahead of time and asked the students to halt their plans. Now they're on a witch hunt, looking at surveillance cameras to try to identify more food-throwers. Relax: Sloppy Joes and spaghetti never hurt anyone. [11 Alive]
