We get it, lyrics can be confusing at times. We also understand that the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song contains a lot of memorable lines. But mistaking some of them with a death threat? Well, this seems a little farfetched. However, this was exactly the case in Ambridge, Pennsylvania where a school was forced to temporarily lock down last week. A medical receptionist called a 19-year-old AHS student to remind him of his upcoming optometrist appointment, but the call went straight to his voicemail. The greeting featured him imitating the line from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme that says “shooting some B-ball outside of school.” The receptionist thought Clawson said “shooting people outside of the school” and called local police, who contacted administrators at Ambridge High School. When the student could not be located, local police issued a countywide lockdown of all schools in the district. The student was later found in a guidance counselor’s office in school. Police “swarmed” the 19-year-old and took him into custody. The teen said he meant no harm when he was imitating Will Smith. Local District Attorney Anthony Berosh confirmed that Clawson was imitating the rap song, and was released without being charged.
