Skimpy prom dress lands Houston teen in cuffs
HOUSTON – Marche Taylor’s prom night experience wasn’t quite the norm. That’s because a night of dancing and hanging out with friends ended in a confrontation with school officials over her choice of apparel.
The Madison High School senior was escorted out in handcuffs because school officials said her revealing gold dress was inappropriate for the school prom.
“I actually like the dress. Everybody else likes my dress,” Ms. Taylor said as she showed it off to a KHOU-TV reporter on Friday afternoon.
Madison High’s prom took place at the Sugar Land Marriott, but Ms. Taylor got only as far as the lobby. When she tried to enter the ballroom, she was told her outfit violated a school dress code.
“She shook her head, she was like, ‘You are not getting into this prom,’” Ms. Taylor said. “We were arguing back and forth because I wanted to know why I can’t get into my prom.”
Even after offering to provide more cover, Ms. Taylor was denied access. So she demanded her money back.
Eventually, Ms. Taylor said, someone called police. Officers showed up, handcuffed her and escorted her out. A photographer snapped a photo of Ms. Taylor, in handcuffs, being led out of the hotel.
Madison High School Principal Aubrey Todd said said the dress was inappropriate and violated the rules.
“It was revealing in such a way that it would not be appropriate for a prom,” said Mr. Todd, who stood by the school official who denied Ms. Taylor access to the event.
Ms. Taylor said she regrets how things turned out. “They didn’t give me any options but to go to jail or go home,” she said.
My daughter’s 14 now and wouldn’t even joke about something like this. Where in the hell are her parents?! Did they really ok this?
