SELMA, NORTH CAROLINA- A teen says he was turned away from his prom for homeschooled kids because he wore his late grandfather's kilt even though it wasn't banned by a dress code.

David Leix wore it for "Praise Prom" which is described as a Christian alternative prom for homeschoolers. Volunteers refused to let him with his date when he showed up in the kilt, even though the dress code said pants are acceptable but jeans, shorts and baggy pants were not.

Other parents at the prom chipped in to buy him some pants and he came about about two hours later and was admitted.
