School goes into lockdown over "Fresh Prince" theme

Receptionist Mistakes Fresh Prince Theme Song for Threat; School Goes Into Lockdown:
  • The teen's voicemail greeting triggered a lockdown at his Pennsylvania school after a receptionist misheard his rendition of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" theme song.

    While trying to confirm an appointment with 19-year-old Travis Clawson the receptionist thought the message said "shooting people outside of the school." The line is actually "shooting some b-ball," a reference to basketball.

    The receptionist called 911 and Economy police arrested Clawson a short time later at Ambridge Area High School, but released him once he explained the message.

    Acting police Chief James Mann says police acted "appropriately" out of concern for students' welfare.

Thank goodness, the kid didn't have "Be Cruel to Your School" as his ringtone. He'd probably be in state prison by now.
