A mistaken interpretation of a student’s voicemail greeting triggered a lockdown of several schools in a western Pennsylvania county, and led to the student’s arrest on Thursday.

The prerecorded greeting was the student’s imitation of part of the rap theme song from the “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” a 1990s sitcom starring a young Will Smith.

A receptionist for a local eye doctor listened to the message when she called 19-year-old Travis Clawson to confirm an appointment, reports [2] Fox News. At one point, the receptionist thought she heard Clawson say, “shooting people outside of the school.”

The actual words to the song are: “And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school.”

Worried that Clawson was up to no good, the unnamed receptionist called 911. A throng of local police responded quickly. Schools throughout Beaver County were locked down for about 20 minutes, the Beaver County Times reports [3].
