VIDEO: Teen rides dirt bike through high school campus in Santa Clarita

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (KABC) -- Stunning video captured the moment a teen rode a dirt bike through the campus of Hart High School in Santa Clarita on Wednesday.

The dangerous stunt was done by a 16-year-old former Hart High School student who's now a junior at another high school.

He joked that he decided to pull a senior prank a year early.

"Just to impress my friends I rode my dirt bike through our high school," the teen, who ABC7 has not identified because he's a juvenile, said.

While many students may have been impressed, many adults were not. The ride through the middle of a crowded campus could get then teen into trouble with the law.

"Going in I didn't think I was going to get in trouble, but now I'm definitely probably going to get in trouble," the teen said.

The school district released a statement that said in part, "In no way does the Hart School District condone anything that could result in injury or property damage. This includes 'pranks.' Our staff takes every step possible to thwart pranks and, if one does occur, will hold those involved accountable."

The teen said after reflecting on the decision, he believes it might not have been worth it.
