LAFAYETTE- Police say 19 Comeaux High seniors face misdemeanor charges after they allegedly vandalized the school over the weekend.

Lafayette police Cpl. Paul Mouton says the students received misdemeanor summonses for criminal mischief and criminal trespassing for vandalizing the school grounds.

Comeaux High Principal Joe Craig tells The Advocate the students didn't spray paint or destroy property, but the school wasn't fit to open Monday.

Craig says they dumped trash barrels, turned over yard furniture. In the cafeteria, he says they turned over furniture and threw eggs against windows.

Craig says some students urinated by the cafeteria, toilet-papered trees, wrote expletives and drew lewd pictures in chalk on sidewalks and buildings.
