Columbia yearbook prank leads to student’s arrest

A Columbia high school student faces a possible felony charge in criminal court after her arrest for changing a classmate’s name in the school yearbook to a sexually suggestive term.

Kaitlyn Booth, a 17-year-old Hickman High School student, was arrested May 14 after she allegedly changed a student’s last name from Mastain to “masturbate” in the yearbook. She could be charged with first-degree property damage, a felony, and harassment.

The school decided against reprinting more than 700 yearbooks and instead placed stickers on the altered page with the student’s correct name.

Raigan Mastain told the Columbia Daily Tribune she “wasn’t devastated” over the incident and was surprised the student was arrested. No charges had been filed as of Tuesday morning.
