White student accused of noose around black student's neck
A white high-school student has been accused of putting a noose around a black student's neck in northeast Louisiana.
Ouachita Parish Schools Superintendent Don Coker says a teacher saw the incident and immediately took the white student to administrators at West Ouachita High School.
Coker says the student at the school in West Monroe was disciplined, but he cannot give details.
A spokesman for the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office says an investigation at the school brought a juvenile's arrest on a hate crime battery charge. Deputy Glenn Springfield said he could not give or confirm other details because both students are juveniles.
