LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) – A Lafayette man has retired as principal of a high school after being accused of driving while intoxicated.
Lafayette Parish School Board’s status for 55-year-old Ralph Thibodeaux was listed as service retirement on its meeting agenda Wednesday.
He was principal of W.D. & Mary Baker Smith Career Center in Lafayette.
Louisiana State Police say he broke off one of the wheels on his own vehicle during a series of crashes last month. No one was injured.
It’s unclear whether he had an attorney to speak for him.
