BROOKLYN - Three Brooklyn high school seniors have been arrested after police say they laced a cake with laxatives as a prank.

Department of Education spokeswoman Margie Feinberg said Wednesday that the cake sickened two crossing guards, a social worker and three teachers - two of whom sought treatment at a hospital.

Police say the seniors, who attend the Brooklyn School for Global Studies in Cobble Hill, now face assault charges.
