AMBRIDGE, Pa. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A 90's TV show theme song wound up putting a high school on lockdown this week.
An Ambridge High School employee heard a portion of the lyrics to the theme for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, when she called a student to confirm a doctor's appointment.
She thought that she heard the lyric "shooting some people outside of school."
The correct lyric is, "shooting some b-ball outside of the school."
She immediately called police, forcing Ambridge High School into a 30 minute lockdown.
Police say the 19-year-old student was in custody for 3 hours while searching his locker before determining it was all one big misunderstanding.
