A high school tradition got out of hand in Pérez Zeledón Tuesday and police reported they rounded up 50 minors and eight persons of age.
The disturbance took place at the Liceo Unesco where students in the highest class generally celebrate the end of their exams. Tuesday they began with water balloons and then graduated to eggs, fruit and food. The targets were passers-by along the main street in front of the school.
Police took the minors to their headquarters and notified parents to pickup their children. The eight students over 18 are going to juvenile court, the Fuerza Pública said.
