18-year-old Tyell Morton was arrested for leaving a blow-up sex doll in the bathroom at Rush Consolidated High School in Indiana. Now he could go to prison for eight years. Sure, it was a stupid joke, but that seems a mite harsh.

Apparently Morton was caught on camera taking a package (which contained the doll) into the building and leaving without it and school officials freaked out and thought it was a bomb and locked down the building and called in the cops and bomb-sniffing dogs. Somehow this translates into Morton going to prison for close to a decade. If we all had to go to prison for the stupid unfunny stuff we did in high school, most of us would still be serving our sentences.
