The American Civil Liberties Union is now involved after a family has reported to police that a Madisonville teen was assaulted by his high school principal.

School representatives, without providing details of what they contend happened, deny the family's assertions of an assault.

Sequoyah High School senior Chris Sigler alleged that Principal Maurice Moser assaulted him after he wore a homemade shirt to school on Sept. 27 and Sept. 30 that said "Gay Straight Alliance: We've got your back" on it. Sigler said the alleged assault occurred on Sept. 30.
