Two 9th grade student allegedly used their computer smarts to illegally interfere with their school’s internet connection on several occasions so that they wouldn’t have to take tests.

At Secaucus High School in New Jersey, two boys, age 14, allegedly took down the internet connection that is essential for much of the schoolwork on the campus. The purported connection-crashing shenanigans appeared to correlate with the times that tests were scheduled to take place in the classes of the accused students.

Last Thursday, school officials notified the authorities to report the allegedly intentional web blackouts and give the police the names of the students that they suspected were the responsible parties.
