Student with 'unnatural hair color' punches school officerAugust 11, 2017 4:53pm

SCOTT, La. (AP) — Authorities say a Louisiana high school senior in trouble because of his hair color ended up punching a school safety officer.

News outlets report the 17-year-old Acadiana High School student is accused of attacking the officer Wednesday after being sent to the office because of bright red hair.

Lafayette Parish schools banned hair colors not natural to humans, such as blue or pink, beginning this year.

Scott Police Chief Chad Leger says the student was told to eat lunch while awaiting a parent to retrieve him, and was later found in an unauthorized area of the public high school. Authorities say he punched the officer twice in the head while being escorted to the office.

He's accused of resisting an officer with violence.

It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
