SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - More than two dozen students at a Sacramento high school have been barred from walking at graduation after school officials say they spray painted profane graffiti and smeared peanut butter throughout the campus.

The vandalism at C.K. McClatchy High School this week was billed as a senior prank. But Principal Peter Lambert tells the Sacramento Bee it went too far.

A student with a peanut allergy suffered a bad reaction and was sent to a doctor. And the damage is estimated at more than $5,000.

In addition to the graffiti and peanut butter, the vandals spread toilet paper and threw eggs. A total of 30 students have been banned from graduation ceremonies. Lambert also intends to seek restitution.

Sacramento police spokesman Andrew Pettit says a criminal investigation could also be launched.
