Colfax High plans to handle discipline in-house
The teenager who streaked across Placer High School’s field during a playoff game could face school discipline. However, Auburn Police Department Capt. John Ruffcorn said Friday that police are not actively investigating the case. Ruffcorn added that no one has been charged with a crime related to the incident that took place at the high school’s football game Nov. 27. “We are not actively investigating it, but we are aware of it,” Ruffcorn said. Online comments at auburnjournal.com stated that the youth involved had been suspended from Colfax High School. On Friday, Rob Hitchcock, Colfax High assistant principal, said school officials are investigating the matter and are still working on what kind of in-house discipline measures will be taken. “Throughout the week we’ve worked with students about the disruption,” Hitchcock said. “There was some involved with the disruption at the field but we haven’t done anything specifically for streaking.” News spread about the streaker after it was published in a recent edition of the Journal. Friday, Channel 10 news requested a copy of photographer Ben Furtado’s photo. Jenifer Gee can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
