The principal of one of San Antonio Independent School District's high schools was arrested recently on a drunken driving charge.
Brackenridge High School Principal Moises Ortiz was arrested on the night of Feb. 13 after he was caught drinking and driving in his personal vehicle.
District spokeswoman Leslie Price said Ortiz never called in sick or was put on administrative leave for the arrest.
In fact, nothing may happen to him since the arrest happened on personal time.
According to the district, Ortiz has been principal of Brackenridge High School for three years, after being hired in July 2011.
In total, he's been with the San Antonio Independent School District for the past 16 years, and held various positions, which included middle school principal and assistant principal.
Price said the district is continuing to review his situation.
"DWI is not necessarily grounds for termination except in certain circumstances," Price said. "For instance, it would be automatic if it was a felony, if the employee involved was driving a district vehicle (or) if it was school-related -- (but) that's not any of the circumstances in this particular case."
Price said she did not know if Ortiz addressed his students or any parents about his arrest and that no letter was sent home by the district to inform parents about his situation.
