The Lafayette High School teacher accused of throwing a hammer at a student has been issued a summons for aggravated assault.
Gene Daigle turned himself into Lafayette police on Friday. No one was injured during the incident which occurred at Lafayette High May 3.
Angela Morrison, with the Lafayette School System says Daigle has been placed on paid administrative leave. She says the school system is waiting on police to finish their investigation, then evidence will be reviewed by human resources and the superintendent. Police say they will be forwarding the summons and witness statements to prosecutors.
"The school board will be conducting their own investigation, we conducted our investigation on the criminal side of things and they will take a look at it on the administrative side of things" said Corporal Paul Mouton.
Calls to Daigle and Lafayette High School Principal Dr. Patrick Leonard have not been returned.
