Three teens charged in Roxana HS prank

   Three teenage boys face felony charges in connection with an April Fools Day prank that forced a lockdown Tuesday at Roxana High School.  
   Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons filed disorderly conduct charges Wednesday against two 15 year olds from Roxana and Wood River, and a 16 year old from South Roxana.  The charges are felonies but the cases will remain in juvenile court.  
   Police from ten agencies responded to the high school Tuesday afternoon after a text message reported shots fired at the school. The school was locked down for about an hour before it was determined that the report had been a hoax.  
   If convicted, the teens face sentences ranging from supervised probation to incarceration at a juvenile center.

   LOS ANGELES (AP) — A dry ice explosion occurred late Monday at Los Angeles International Airport, but there were no reports of any injuries or evacuations, authorities said.

   The incident was reported shortly before 8:30 p.m. at the airport's Tom Bradley International Terminal. There was no immediate word where the dry ice was found or whether there was any significant damage.

   Two other devices also were found at the airport but they did not explode, Detective Gus Villanueva said.

   Investigators don't believe the incident is linked to terrorism and no threat was called into the airport, Villanueva said.

   No flights were affected by the explosion, authorities said.

   On Sunday night, someone planted a plastic bottle containing dry ice that exploded in an employee bathroom in LAX's terminal 2. Up to four flights were delayed after airport police halted security screening for more than an hour.

   No arrests have been made in either case.

   A bomb squad was at the airport late Monday and investigators from the LAPD's criminal conspiracy division were assisting, Villanueva said.

   A St. Charles man is facing charges for shooting a neighbor's car after becoming upset over high school pranksters.  

   It happened about 11:30 Sunday night in the 1300 block of Edinburgh Drive.  

   Police say Daniel Beauchamp had come outside with a shotgun after discovering a group of teens in his yard with rolls of toilet paper.  The would-be TP-ers ran.  

   A neighbor told police she encountered Beauchamp in the street where he hit her car and yelled at her when she tried to drive around him.  She says she heard a popping sound, but kept going.  She got home and discovered that her front tire had been shot.  

   Beauchamp has admitted that he shot at the neighbor's car. His bail is set at 20-thousand dollars.

CASSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri high school says four girls' basketball players from a rival school poured urine into the opposing team's water cooler during a February game.

Monett High's principal told parents in a letter last week that the four Cassville High players each urinated into a cup, then dumped the contents of one of the cups into the Monett team cooler at a Feb. 4 game in Cassville. The schools are located about 20 miles apart near the Missouri-Arkansas border.

A written statement from the Cassville school district confirms that unspecified disciplinary action has been taken in response to the "inappropriate act."

Monett High School has contacted infectious disease specialists and says a Cassville student is being tested for potential health risks. Monett's principal encouraged parents not to retaliate.
