A Catholic school principal in Louisiana has resigned after he was arrested at  a Washington, D.C., strip club while chaperoning a school field trip. Cops were reportedly called to the Archibald's Gentlemen's Club on Thursday because Holy Family principal Michael Comeau was "standing in the roadway, refusing to move" outside the club after "refusing to pay his bill." He was charged with public intoxication and possession of an open container of alcohol. On Friday, the Diocese of Baton Rouge said in a statement, "The incident occurred when the students on the trip were in their hotel rooms for the evening under the supervision of other chaperones...Mr. Comeau has submitted his resignation as principal and an interim principal will be appointed.” Comeau reportedly brought a service dog with him into the strip club and also worked part-time back in Louisiana as a reserve police officer.
