IRWIN — A school district has disciplined students after a disc jockey posted a Facebook picture in which he holds bras thrown at him at a homecoming dance.


Norwin School District officials said an unspecified number of students have been disciplined. The district, about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, also will no longer allow the DJ, Eric Wenning, to work school dances.


District spokesman Jonathan Szish said Wednesday all indications are that Wenning didn't encourage the bra-throwing but that he showed poor judgment in posting the photo to Facebook.


Szish couldn't immediately saw how many students were disciplined but said confidentiality rules prevent him from naming who was punished and how.


Wenning has told WPXI-TV, which first reported the bra throwing and photo, that he was appalled when the female students started throwing their bras at him during the Sept. 29 dance.


Wenning didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday, but told the station he regretted posting the Facebook picture. "It was kind of in a moment of bad judgment. I did take a picture with a shocked look on my face holding the bras in my hand and posted it on my private Facebook page," Wenning told the station. "I really apologize for making that bad judgment call and I do not condone any of this behavior."


The picture has since been removed from his Facebook page.


School officials began investigating when a parent saw the Facebook photo and complained.
