NEW ORLEANS -- A Louisiana high school student says he was sent home for wearing an Indianapolis Colts jersey after the principal encouraged students to wear jerseys supporting the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana has faxed Principal Steve Vampran a letter supporting 17-year-old Brandon Frost. State ACLU director Marjorie Esman says she wants Frost's record cleared of any discipline stemming from the incident.

Frost says he moved from Indianapolis about three years ago. He says the principal called him out of class Friday because of his jersey. He says the principal became angry when told Frost's father had given him permission to go home if wearing the jersey was a problem.

Principal Steven Vampran declined to comment.
