ACCORD, N.Y. – A Rondout Valley High School student sparked a controversy when he showed up at school dressed as a movie character based on the comic book hero, Captain America, according to a report by Time Warner Cable News.

Steven Snyder’s costume included a helmet and ammunition belt that were confiscated by school officials concerned about certain threats the Ulster County school district had received in the past, the Time Warner Cable News report said.

After Snyder’s sister Keli Marie posted something on Facebook and Instagram about the incident, the school vowed to make the rules regarding appropriate attire clearer, Times Warner Cable News reported.
