Cheerleader Took this Homecoming Thing Too Far
As a finalist for homecoming queen, the 17 year old cheerleader from Hartford, Michigan bribed fellow students with illegal pot brownies. Whether she won or not still remains a mystery.
The Plan Is Carried Out
A few days before her high school’s homecoming game she showed up to school with a dozen put brownies to help steer the voters in her favor.
‘The cheerleader gave goody bags to football players, a standard practice before games’, Hartford Police told local TV station WWMT, ‘but hers also allegedly came with the brownies and their dose of THC’.
An Anonymous Tip
The cheerleader’s ambitious scheme was revealed around September 26, when police say someone used an app to anonymously notify state authorities, who then relayed the tip to Hartford police.
‘School officials were able to retrieve two brownies in their entirety and the partial remains of a third brownie’, Hartford Superintendent Andrew Hubbard told The Washington Post.
At least eight students face possible expulsion for their roles or reactions to the scheme, according to Superintendent Hubbard.
Police say the baked goods will be sent to a crime lab for testing and analysis.
Cheerleader’s Unfulfilled Quest
The cheerleader did not attend Friday classes after the alleged plot was uncovered and was barred from participating in homecoming ceremonies, according to Superintendent Hubbard.
Police told Fox17 that the cheerleader has moved out of state since the incident, but said that criminal charges will be pursued.
There has been no word if the brownies won her the homecoming queen title.
“I have read about things across this country. It has not happened with anything that I know of in this area,” Hartford Police Officer Michael Prince told Fox17.“I have been an officer a long time, and whenever you think you have ve heard it all, something just about daily comes up, like, ‘Wow’.”
