Florida College Kids Jailed After Dumb Prank Goes Wrong

Two students at Florida's St. Leo University decided to play a little prank, so they sprayed furniture polish on the terrazzo floor of their residence floor and hoped that someone would slip.

Some one did! Hahahaha! Hilarious! Watching people fall is truly the most satisfying source of laughter ever. Let me wipe these tears of laughter from eyes. Oh wait, it was a girl on crutches. Way to go, assholes!

Tyler Slaveski and Ryan Tannenbaum, both 18, masterminded the prank at the small Catholic liberal arts school in St. Leo, Florida.

The first person to walk on the slippery floor was a girl in crutches. One of the crutches slipped out form under her, and she fell. According to WTSP, the girl sustained a bruise on her lower back and hit her head so hard on the floor she may have suffered a concussion. She was taken to an urgent care facility.

Slaveski and Tannenbaum were taken to jail. Both were charged with culpable negligence with injury, a first degree misdemeanor. They could be fined up to $1,000 or possibly even face up to a year in jail.
