An Arresting Prom Dress
Marche Taylor was arrested for wearing a skimpy dress to her high school prom. The 17-year-old senior at Madison High School in Houston, Texas, wore a revealing gold dress for her prom and was immediately stopped in the lobby of the Sugar Land Marriott hotel where her prom was held. The school official told her she was violating a school dress code.
"She shook her head, she was like, 'You are not getting into this prom,'” Ms. Taylor said. “We were arguing back and forth because I wanted to know why I can't get into my prom.”
Even after offering to provide more cover, Ms. Taylor was denied access. So she demanded her money back.
Eventually, Ms. Taylor said, someone called police. Officers showed up, handcuffed her and escorted her out.
When asked later how she felt about her dress, Marche replied, "I actually like the dress. Everybody else likes my dress."
