Granada Hills Charter High School (near Los Angeles, CA) has given us many gifts: John Elway, Ryan Braun, Valerie Bertinelli … but now they have given the gift of comedy, which is the greatest gift of all. Granada’s baseball team, one of the top programs in the district, is expected to do well again this year, that is if the team still has any players left by spring. Police are at their wits end, because they can’t get the kids to stop TPing area residents’ homes.
TPing, of course, is short for toilet papering, and the Highlanders have turned it into an art. One resident, fed up with the constant attacks, even resorted to shooting at the players with a paintball gun. The police are trying to prevent things from escalating.
LAPD Detective Ray Webb confirmed that he held a meeting Wednesday morning with parents, players and coaches of the school’s baseball team to discuss alleged incidents involving the TP’ing of players’ homes.
“We’re trying to stop it,” Webb said.
Yes, an LAPD detective has been assigned to this case. Because you don’t want it to develop into something more serious, like graffiti, or (dramatic music here) egging.
