GRAFTON, WI (WTAQ) - A 16-year-old boy was found injured in a ditch early Tuesday, just hours after a homecoming prank.
Grafton Police said they were called around 11:30 p.m. Monday, after a hospital security official said several youngsters parked their vehicles in the hospital lot and ran off.
When officers arrived they saw the community's traditional toilet-papering of trees at Grafton High School. The teens ran away, but officers did not chase them.
Five hours later, around 4:30 a.m., the parents of a 16-year-old called police to say he didn't make it home. He was later found in a ditch near the toilet-papering.
They said he apparently hit his head and fell down an embankment.
The boy was flown to Milwaukee Children's Hospital. His condition was not immediately disclosed.
Police say they've started to issue citations in the homecoming toilet-papering incident.
