Would it surprise you to hear that John Lennon was a TROUBLEMAKER in school?

On November 22nd, two reports from John's high school...which detail his history of DETENTION...are going to be auctioned off. The sheets date back to the mid-'50s, and were authenticated by John's childhood friend Pete Shotten.

According to the records, John received numerous detentions, for being a "nuisance," causing "silliness" and "sabotage," and having, quote, "just no interest whatsoever."  He even got detention for being 15 minutes late for DETENTION.

Each one is expected to go for between $3,100 and $4,700.
