Prom Canceled Over Water Balloon Fight

CINCINNATI (February 8, 2013)--An Ohio high school canceled its prom to punish students for a massive water balloon fight at lunch.

The principal of Withrow High School in Cincinnati said students used social media last month to plan the prank.

Principal Sharon Johnson says staff members found out and tried to prevent the water balloon battle.

She made announcements the day of the planned prank, warning students the prom would be canceled if they had the fight because school officials were concerned about safety.

Despite the warning about 150 to 175 students went ahead with the prank.

Johnson says there was water everywhere, as a result.

Johnson said she received only a few phone calls from upset parents.
