A Port Allen Catholic School Principal has resigned after he was arrested for public intoxication at a strip club in Washington D.C.
Michael Comeau was arrested at the Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, D.C. after police received a report about an intoxicated man who did not want to pay his bill.
Comeau allegedly refused to move out of the roadway after being told multiple times to do so.
The Diocese of Baton Rouge released a statement confirming the incident:
The Diocese of Baton Rouge confirmed today that Michael Comeau, principal at Holy Family School in Port Allen, was arrested on May 30 while on a school sponsored trip to Washington, DC.
