Extracurricular Activity

North Palm Beach, Fla., police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked behind Mavericks High School, which is for “at-risk” students. When they arrived, Krista Morton, 45, told officers everything was OK, she was “just friends” with the other occupant of the vehicle in the back seat with her, an 18-year-old who she had picked up off the street because she “wanted to get to know him.” But he said no, he was a student at the school — and Morton was his principal. Officers observed that Morton’s shirt was unbuttoned enough that she was “exposing her shoulders and part of her chest,” and they smelled marijuana. Morton allegedly admitted that “marijuana had been smoked” in the car and, when marijuana was found on the seat, both occupants were arrested on drug charges. Morton was released quickly, but the boy was held because he was unable to post bail. (RC/South Florida Sun Sentinel) ...Yep, he was at-risk all right.
