'Fresh Prince' voice mail alarms schools

UPI News Service, 03/04/2013 

A voice mail tune on a phone in Beaver County, Pa., was mistaken as a threat, and officials closed down schools for 20 minutes.

The voice mail actually played the theme from the 1990s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," which contains a line, "And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school," the Beaver County Times reported. Officials thought the line was about "shooting people outside of the school," the newspaper said.

Police searched for the 19-year-old Ambridge Area High School student Travis Clawson who recorded the theme.

The report said the voice mail reached police when an eye doctor's receptionist called the student Thursday to remind him about an appointment, but when he did not pick up his voice mail prompted her to call the school. The school, in turn, contacted the police.

Clawson was not charged, but officials urged Clawson's parents to have the voice mail message changed.
