(LATIMES) — A middle school student is faced with an in-school suspension for having an image of San Antonio Spurs forward Matt Bonner shaved into the back of his head.

Patrick Gonzalez of Woodlake Hills Middle School in San Antonio, Texas, said he’s always been a huge fan of Bonner.

“Ever since I can remember,” he told FOX station KABB.

With the Spurs playing against the Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals, he decided to display his admiration for his favorite player on his head. When he arrived at school with his new hairdo, the faculty was not pleased.

“My first period teacher called the principal,” Patrick said. “She told her it was a distraction.”
