GRANITE BAY, CA - The Roseville High School District paid nearly $200,000 to fight a lawsuit filed after a video led to trouble for a student.
Two years ago Mike Harris said his son, Erick, wrote, produced and directed a video that was a spoof on teen culture in Granite Bay. It talked about making money, chasing girls and popping pills.
"They posted it on YouTube," Harris explained. "The video was made at our house and about 15 current and former students participated."
Harris said he thought the video was funny, but when his son started his senior year at Granite Bay High School administrators apparently failed to see the humor.
"We got a call and were told we needed to come to the school to discuss some issues concerning the video," Harris said. He said administrators admitted Erick hadn't broken any rules but they believed it reflected poorly on the school and there could be consequences.
