Teen Cited for Trying to Go to His Prom

View Comments ()



    A teenager was cited for disorderly conduct after authorities say he swore at school officials who wouldn't let him into his school prom, from which he'd been banned for failing to serve detention.

    Pennsylvania State police say Colin Mitchell Ocker, 18, tried to go to Saturday's prom despite being told by Shippensburg Area High School officials he couldn't attend.

    Pennlive.com reports officials say he cursed at school officials who wouldn't let him in. State police say he also threatened to break in the back door of The Meadowlands Mall along Beistle Plaza, where the prom was being held, and began tapping on the windows.

    Authorities say he knew he wouldn't be able to attend because of the detention issue.

    A telephone listing for Ocker couldn't immediately be found.
