National Football League player accepts prom invitation from Wisconsin girl

Waukesha School District spokeswoman Terry Schuster said Bell could attend the public events with 17-year-old Waukesha West junior Ava Tarantino, but she said district policy bars from the dance guests who have been involved in drug, alcohol or violent criminal incidents.

Last week Tarantino tweeted Bell a bet, that if her message could be retweeted 500 times, Bell would have to be her prom date.

However, Bell is too old, per district policy, and also has a past marijuana bust on his record, which means he would not be allowed to attend.

"You can Google Mr. Bell", she said. She's up near 2,000 now, so Bell agreed to attend.

Jim Tarantino doesn't know the details of Bell's past, but he wonders if Bell speaking to students about overcoming mistakes would be beneficial.

Bell served a two-game suspension from the National Football League to start the 2015 season for the infraction and has since completed his probation program.

"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".

Bell upped the ante to "600 & it's a deal".

The running back intends to bring his mother to the dance as well as his own girlfriend, who will be doing Ava's makeup, WISN reported.

We have a feeling Bell could have been a good prom date, as his on-field shiftiness might translate into slick moves on the dance floor.

"When the Steelers drafted him in 2013, which is my favorite football team, I was like, 'This is flawless, '" she said. Officials said they have had to enforce the rule before and had to be "equitable". "And I think the fact that he's agreed to do this and to bring his family, speaks very highly of who he is as a person".
