STARK COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - Students were in shock when a few classmates pulled off a high school prank.

GlenOak high school officials say a couple students put their classmates' safety at risk when one rode a dirt bike through the hallway.

It wasn't all fun and games as four now face criminal charges for their involvement in the prank.

According to police, a 17-year-old student rode the bike and is being charged with inducing panic.

Eloy A. Lopes, 18, is the young man accused of holding a door open so the student could escape.

Lopes is not a current student and was technically trespassing on the premise.

According to police records, the fiasco forced the school into a lock-down situation.

Lopes is currently facing charges of inducing panic and criminal aggravated trespass.

He could potentially serve a maximum sentence of eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine for the second-degree felony.

Two other students are also facing charges.
