At approximately 1:15 p.m., three WSS staffers saw the decorated vehicle driving north on 1st Ave near Brown Deer Golf Course. The staffers turned around and proceeded to follow the car towards Liberty High. By the time the staffers arrived at the high school, the vehicle had been pulled over in the parking lot by a North Liberty police car. 

Chloe Holt ’19 followed behind the vandalized car to Liberty High. According to Holt, upon their arrival, the group was met by a North Liberty Police Officer in uniform, as well an undercover cop. She also says they were fined for driving an uninsured vehicle and obstruction of view, due to the paint on the windows. 

“Overall it was $500, not including towing,” said Holt.

The car was unregistered, but they weren’t fined with being unregistered because the organizers of the prank had not owned the car long enough for it to be required, according to Holt.

“We spray painted “GGG” as the license plate for Gregg,” said Holt in a text message.

Principal Gregg Shoultz has been contacted by Liberty Administration.

“They’re making us aware of which students were involved,” said Vice Principal Luke DeVries. “And then it’s our responsibility to address the behavior of the students.”

North Liberty police declined to comment on the situation. They also required the students to tow the car.

“We don’t regret it,” Zac Moore ’19 wrote in a text message following the police encounter. “Class of 2019 out with a bang.”
