LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Police in Lafayette have issued a misdemeanor citation to a teacher accused of throwing a hammer at a student at Lafayette High School.

The incident happened a week ago. Cpl. Paul Mouton of the Lafayette Police Department said nobody was struck or injured.

Daigle is listed as an industrial arts teacher on the school website. He has not commented publicly on the incident.
