Two Texas teen girls were charged with planning to poison their high school’s assistant principal, police said. Makes your high school rebellion seem tame in comparison, doesn’t it?

Kelly Lynn Praytor and Shelbi Grace Gill, both 17, were arrested after a substitute teacher at their high school heard them talking about how to “get away with” poisoning their administrator with “an undetectable substance,” The Daily News reported.

According to The Dallas Morning News: "The substitute teacher in turn said she was hesitant to inform authorities about what she had overheard for fear of physical harm based on the girls' hostile demeanor."

Their motive, evidently, came after the assistant principal punished one of them for leaving their school’s campus during class hours without permission.

Praytor was arrested Jan. 30, and Gill was arrested Feb. 9 for the conspiracy. Neither of the teens denied their threats, which also included comments about the assistant principal’s family.

Both teens were charged with making a terroristic threat, which could result in 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
