An unnamed person in Wisconsin has been arrested after lyrics from Odd Future's 'Pigeons' were sprayed painted on the walls of Kettle Moraine High School.

The lyrics, which read as ''Kill people, burn shit, fuck school", were spray painted on the school's wall last week (March 1), but were painted over soon after.

A report of the incident surfaced on local channel Fox 6 Now, but makes no reference to Odd Future. However, in the report's video it clearly shows the 'Pidgeons' lyrics sprayed on the school's wall. You can see the video at the bottom of the page.

The report also details that after the incident occurred, a number of students were withdrawn from school for the day by their parents over fears that the lyrics may represent some kind of threat.

Odd Future's new album 'OF Tapes Vol 2' will be released on March 19 and will feature new material from Frank Ocean, Left Brain and The Internet as well as Tyler and Hodgy Beats. However, rapper Earl Sweatshirt, who recently reunited with the group, is not expected to be involved as he is not mentioned in any of the LP's tracklisting.

Odd Future will play a handful of tour dates in the UK and Ireland later this month. The gigs kick off Birmingham's O2 Academy on March 28, and end on April 2 at Dublin Olympia. The run also includes shows in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
