WATCH: News Station Gets Pranked During Live Report of UCLA Water Main Break

Posted Wednesday, July 30th 2014 @ 10am

In California, a major cleanup continues around UCLA after a water main break flooded the campus and nearby streets with millions of gallons of water.  Assistant Vice Chancellor Kelly Schmader says the UCLA campus is open today, but there's "substantial damage" to six facilities including the newly renovated Pauley Pavilion. 

During the live coverage of the water main break, ABC 7 in Los Angeles took a call from somebody claiming to be a DWP spokesperson, "Louis Slung-Poo", who claimed that the water main break was caused by some pranksters.

KFI radio host Tim Conway Jr. was able to track down the prankster and spoke with him during his show.
