Whackademia Quote: Drama Teacher Accused of Arson

     A high school drama teacher in Graham, North Carolina has been arrested for committing arson in the auditorium on February 19, 2014 and then encouraging students to lie about it. Police believe the teacher, Michael Shannon…purposely started a big fire in the school's auditorium in an attempt to cover up a small, accidental fire that was somehow ignited backstage during rehearsal for an upcoming school play.

     Police think the first, small fire was put out quickly. However, they believe the…drama teacher got flustered when alarms went off as a result of that small fire….Shannon was arrest and later released on a $25,000 bond….
