LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man has retired as principal of a high school after being accused of driving while intoxicated.

News outlets report the 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.
