When April Timmons received a text message from her mother about hearing gunshots being fired inside the school where she works, she immediately called 911 only to find out later that it was all an April Fool’s joke.
Angela Timmons, who works as an employee at Virginia College in Greenville, S.C was later arrested and charged with aggravated breach of peace and disturbing a school.
Sheriff Chuck Wright of Spartanburg County tells in an interview that the joke was made in bad taste and not amusing at all. He explains further that the moment they received the information from the 911 dispatcher, deputies rushed to the scene, driving as quickly as they can with no regard for their own lives.
The deputies that rushed to the school were expecting the worst, as April Timmons told the 911 dispatcher that her mother called her and said that they are hiding in a file cabinet office because there are gunshots on campus.
Further investigation also revealed that Timmons has played the same kind of practical joke before.
