Students need to know there’s a line that can’t be crossed. That from Brownsville Senator Eddie Lucio Junior as he filed a bill that would automatically suspend a student from extracurricular activities if they attack a referee, judge, or any other official.

In comments to the McAllen Monitor, Lucio acknowledges the bill is a response to Emmanual Duron’s assault on a referee during an Edinburg High School football game in December.

The legislation would require a school district to suspend the offending student from UIL-sanctioned activities. After the December incident, Duron was suspended by the UIL executive committee. He was also criminally charged with assault.
