Le'Veon Bell barred from attending Steelers fan's prom

Bell returns to the lineup for the Steelers on Sunday against Kansas City.

Well, it is fun while it lasted, but the dream prom of Ava Tarantino isn't going to happen.

According to Annysa Johnson of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Bell is more than welcome to attend the grand march and photo sessions ahead of the Waukesha West High School prom, but will be barred from the dance itself because he's too old and was once arrested for possession of marijuana and driving under the influence. And when she surpassed that - she has since hit 2,000-plus - he tweeted, "A deal is a deal. see you at your prom".

For the safety and appropriateness of student guests at prom, high schools in the School District of Waukesha have an age limit of under 20 years old. Bell is 25-years-old.

Waukesha School District spokeswoman Terry Schuster told the Appleton Post-Crescent that Bell is welcome at other events such as the grand march and photo sessions with Tarantino, but can not attend the dance itself.

Bell raised the stakes, tweeting "600 & it's a deal".

Bell agreed to go to Tarantino's prom at Waukesha West when she sent out a tweet asking for retweets. It didn't take her very long at all for her to win that bet and the Steelers running back quickly agreed to attend the prom with her after losing.

"I'm one of the biggest Le'Veon Bell fans said Ava Tarantino, I write on all of my papers Le'Veon Bell, it's everywhere".

Tarantino, 17, has been a Bell fan since he played in college for Michigan State.

"We have to be equitable in the way we treat our students", Schuster said.

Tarantino's father, Jim, hopes they can work something out with the school and said Thursday that she had filed her request. The story just proves the power of social media is insane. And Tarantino is on the lookout for a dress, preferably in the Steelers' colors, black and yellow. Bell's girlfriend had even offered to do her makeup.
