According to wkrn.com Independence High School principal Dr. Todd Campbell was arrested for DUI last month. With affidavit obtained by News 2, Dr. Campbell was involved in a car crash on Nolensville Pike around 7 p.m. on October 24.
When a THP trooper arrived to the scene, he said Campbell smelled of “an intoxicating substance” and had watery eyes. The officer also said Campbell performed poorly on a field sobriety test.
Three hours after the crash, Dr. Campbell was taken to Saint Thomas Midtown for a blood test. The affidavit didn’t specify what Dr. Campbell’s blood alcohol level was, or if he tested positive for any drugs. Campbell did admit to the trooper that he had 3 beers and a Grey Goose Vodka before the crash.
Report says Principal Campbell tried to leave the scene and offered other driver cash because he didn’t want to get in trouble. Campbell has been in trouble with the law previously. In 2009, he also received a DUI.
He is due in court Wednesday on his latest DUI charge.
Carol Birdsong, Communications Director for Williamson County Schools, said that, “The district is aware of the charge and is waiting for the court to adjudicate the matter. We will reserve judgement until such time.”
Just recently Dr. Todd Campbell was selected as the 2015-16 Middle Tennessee Principal of the Year. Nominees for the Tennessee Principal of the Year award must have a minimum of three years experience as a principal and a minimum of five years experience in Tennessee public schools.
