Hinds CC students arrested for Bass Pro prank

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -

That huge fish tank at Bass Pro Shops has proven irresistible to a few college students. Youtube video posted on September 30 depicts two Hinds Community College students sneaking over the railing and taking a quick dip in the fish tank.

Five HCC students had a hand in the prank, one of them shooting the incident from the second floor.

Pearl Police Lieutenant Butch Townsend says the "Bass Pro Challenge" is a new trend among college students, and it has happened in other places as well, like San Antonio and Nashville.

Townsend says the boys were charged with misdemeanors. They are John Edwards, William Guion, and John Hicks, all 18, and all from Yazoo City.

Nineteen-year-old Brent Pigg of Yazoo City and 19-year-old Thomas Smith of Clarksdale were also arrested. All five are charged with disorderly conduct and interference with a business.
