LEWISVILLE, Texas (AP) — Officials of a suburban Dallas school district say they've taken action against a high school student and ex-student over their actions at a high school basketball game that included holding up signs saying "White" and "Power."

District officials declined to reveal specifics of the discipline, citing privacy laws. But Lewisville school Superintendent Kevin Rogers says the district was working in tandem with police.

In a statement, Rogers said the two were removed from a soccer game at the high school for inappropriate behavior before the Feb. 13 basketball game with Plano East High School.

Rogers says the ex-student then defecated aboard a Plano school bus, then both displayed the "White" and "Power" signs at the basketball game briefly before they were stopped.
