Typically schools here would make kids turn their shirts inside-out if their shirt was thought to be offensive.
I agree that arresting this kid may be over the line though.
Just for the board communists, the Logan County schools dress code:
Student dress and grooming should be in good taste and appropriate for the occasion.
Sunglasses are not to be worn in the classroom unless a medical permit is on file.
No hats or bandannas are to be worn in the building during the class day. If students must wear a hat to school, the hat must be placed in the locker and left there until the school day is over. Vocational students may take their hat at the time of their departure.
Appropriate clothing should be worn at all times. The main torso of the body should not be visible. Therefore, the wearing of mesh shirts would be inappropriate without and appropriate shirt under the mesh shirt. The wearing of garments considered as tank tops or tops with spaghetti straps is inappropriate.
Any article of clothing or accessories, such as jewelry with spikes, dog collars, wallet chains, chains worn as belts, that may cause injury to another student may not be worn at school or school functions.
Clothing and accessories that display profanity, violence, discriminatory messages or sexually suggestive phrases are not to be worn at school or school functions.
Clothing that displays advertisements for any alcohol, tobacco, or drug product is not to be worn at school or school functions.
Waistband of shorts, slacks, skirts, and similar garments must be worn above the hips. If belts, suspenders, or straps are worn, they must be worn in place and fastened. Undergarments shall not be visible. Any article of clothing that is excessively torn may not be worn.
Shoes must be worn at all times. Shoes with laces should be laced and tied at all times.
Business-style blazers, suitcoats, and ties are permitted but outdoor jackets and coats are not to be worn or carried to class.
The legs of trousers and pants shall be worn down at all times.
Hem lengths on dresses, skirts, and shorts must be no higher than mid thigh.
Feel free to find the part where it says "First and Second Amendment rights are not
to be defended by any student!"
