One day before the Salt Bowl â€” which has been known to spark incidents of vandalism between rival schools Benton and Bryant â€” five juveniles were issued citations charging them with vandalism at Benton High School.
When police officers arrived at the school early today, they observed five teenage boys running from the building toward the middle school. One was dressed in camouflage while the others were dressed in blue.
Ultimately, all were charged with criminal mischief, according to Lt. Mike Connell.
