It is likely the dumbest, most insensitive April Fools’ ‘joke’ ever enacted, and resulted in the arrest of a South Carolina woman.

Police say Angela Timmons, 54, who works at Virginia Colleges in Spartanburg County, texted her daughter just after 10 a.m. claiming she ‘could hear gun shots being fired inside the school.’

However, the daughter, April Timmons, who lives in New York couldn’t get hold of her mom after receiving the message and, c-oncerned, the 34-year-old proceeded to call 911 to report the incident.

Sheriff’s deputies swarmed the college where they discovered that no shooting had occurred…

When questioned by Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office deputies, Angela Timmons, who works in ‘financial planning’ for the school, according to her Facebook page, said she sent the text as a joke.

She said she ‘sent the text as an April Fools joke and that she has done such jokes on April Fools in the past.’…

Timmons was arrested and booked into the Spartanburg county Detention Center.

She is being held there on charges including aggravated breach of peace and disturbing a school.
