School District Says Le'Veon Bell Is Barred From Wisconsin Prom Dance

School District Says Le'Veon Bell Is Barred From Wisconsin Prom Dance

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Annysa Johnson, Le'Veon is "barred from the dance itself, according to district policy, because he is too old and was once busted for possession of marijuana and driving under the influence".

Last weekend, Ava Tarantino used Twitter to ask the Pittsburgh Steelers' running back to her prom, and after a bit of negotiating, he accepted.

The district also said Bell is also in violation of a policy prohibiting dates who have been arrested for underage drinking or drug use.

In an apparent reference to the 2014 incident that resulted in Bell's two-game suspension, Waukesha School District spokeswoman Terry Schuster said: "You can Google Mr. Bell".

Its not clear yet if Ava's high school in Waukesha will allow Bell to attend prom.

Microsoft ready to block updates for Windows 7 on latest PCs
With previous operating systems, Microsoft has been willing to extend support if you're big enough and have the cash. We're close to Microsoft signing-off on the Creators Update now, so these builds should be "final build" quality.

"This story proves the power of social media is insane and there's so many positive things that can come out of it", Tarantino said.

"We have to be equitable in the way we treat our students", the spokesperson told the paper. Le'Veon said he'd do it for 600 - not that the difference mattered, since Ava's tweet has now been shared more than 2,000 times. "We don't even know if this is a real commitment".

Tarantino, 17, has been a Bell fan since he played in college for Michigan State.

"I have 100 percent faith that my school will let things go and he'll be able to come", said Tarantino.

Bell recently underwent surgery to fix a core muscle that he injured during the Steelers playoff run. Bell's girlfriend was going to do Tarantino's makeup for the night. "And I think the fact that he's agreed to do this and to bring his family, speaks very highly of who he is as a person".
