A Catholic school principal from Louisiana got himself into a lot of trouble after choosing to go to a strip club while on a class trip to Washington D.C. on Thursday.

Michael Comeau, 47, was the principal at Holy Family Catholic school in Port Allen, which serves pre-K to middle school students. While the children were in their hotel rooms with other chaperones, Comeau headed to Archibald's Gentlemen's Club, which is in close vicinity to the White House.

Officers were called to the club around 2:20 a.m. Friday on a complaint about "an intoxicated man refusing to pay his bill," reports The Advocate. Comeau was found standing in a roadway "refusing to move" when asked multiple times by police.

The principal was then arrested and charged with public intoxication and possession of an open container of alcohol.

Diocese of Baton Rouge spokesman Dan Borné said in a statement about the ordeal, as reported by WAFB-9, "The incident occurred when the students on the trip were in their hotel rooms for the evening under the supervision of other chaperones."

He continued, "Mr. Comeau had been principal of Holy Family School for five years and prior to that time had served in public education in the surrounding area. Mr. Comeau has submitted his resignation as principal and an interim principal will be appointed."

Comeau also resigned from his position as a reserve officer at the Brusly Police Department Friday morning where he served for the past six months, according to Chief Jonathan Lefeaux.
