Judge Fines Teen $77 For Grabbing Principal's Hairpiece
Aug. 16, 1991
SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) _ A teen-ager was fined $77 for pulling off his high school principal's toupee and tossing it on the ground.
Jason Jackson pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor assault and battery charge. He was fined $77 Thursday - which he had already paid in bond - but was told the crime wouldn't go on his record.
Don Moore, Charles Page High School principal, said he was unhappy with municipal Judge James Munn's ruling.
''I want the jerk to have this on record,'' Moore said.
Jackson was accused of grabbing the toupee Feb. 1 during a scuffle. At the time, he was expelled from school for allegedly carrying a knife.
''A long time ago, I decided to wear a hairpiece because I liked the way it changed my looks,'' Moore said. ''I don't care who he is, he has no right to pull it from my head.''
