November 9th was a night that won't
be soon forgotten by Barry Musemeche or his Live Oak football team.
"When my name pops up now, that's
the image people see," said Musemeche.
The head football coach was taken
away in handcuffs fifteen minutes before his team's playoff game with Parkway
High School in Bossier City.
"I'm going to just do what every
coach has every coach has ever done before a football game and that is warm up
our kids and that's all we were doing," added Musemeche.
That did not bode well with
Parkway Principal Nichole Bourgeois, who admitted after the game to removing
Musemeche for not sticking to what she said was Parkway's
"We just found it necessary
to go out ourselves and speak with head coach and when he would not leave the
field after several requests, I requested that the police officers take him off
the field," said Bourgeois.
Now Musemeche is fighting back
with a lawsuit against Bourgeois, the Bossier City Police Department and the
parish's school system.
"Their claims are ridiculous,
this is a high school football game," said Jill Craft, Musemeche's attorney.
According to Musemeche, the goal
of this lawsuit is not financial gain but rather to restore a reputation he has
worked hard to build at Live Oak High School and for more than 20 years
"I'm 49 years old and I've never been handcuffed in my life and I
never thought that 20 minutes before a football game warming up my team would
be the thing that would do it and we're just responding to something we
obviously feel that is wrong," said Musemeche.
