Pa. students disciplined for pic of DJ with bras

IRWIN, Pa. (AP) — A school district has disciplined students after a disc jockey posted a Facebook picture in which he holds bras thrown at him during a recent homecoming dance.

Norwin School District officials told The Associated Press that an unspecified number of students have been disciplined. The district, about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, also will no longer allow the DJ, Eric Wenning, to work school dances.

District spokesman Jonathan Szish told the AP today that all indications are that Wenning didn’t encourage the bra-throwing but that he showed poor judgment in posting the photo to Facebook.

Szish couldn’t immediately saw how many students were disciplined but said confidentiality rules prevent him from naming who was punished and how.

Wenning has told WPXI-TV, which first reported the bra throwing and the photo, that he was appalled when the female students started throwing their bras at him during the Sept. 29 dance.

Wenning didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from the AP, but told the station he regretted posting the Facebook picture.
