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.

Mouton said the teacher — identified as Gene Daigle — was issued a misdemeanor summons Friday for aggravated assault. He was not booked into jail.

School district spokeswoman Angela Morrison said in an email to The Advertiser (http://bit.ly/16mdifd ) that the district cooperated with police in the investigation.

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