(Newser) – Pioneer High School's annual scavenger hunt sounded like good, clean fun. Emphasis "sounded like." AnnArbor.com reports that 31 of the 250 students who participated in the hunt have been suspended for committing such offenses as defecating on the athletic fields of two rival Ann Arbor high schools, spray painting the letter P onto those fields, and cutting one school's tennis nets.

A district rep said the items on the scavenger hunt list are "sometimes harmless, sometimes not so harmless and sometimes go over the top." Clearly. The vandals have been suspended for five days and must pay $90 each in restitution and perform 10 hours of community service. They will be able to walk in their graduation ceremony, but will miss out on the all-night post-graduation party.
