Lawrence High School Assistant Principal Jan Gentry was arrested during the weekend for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
A sheriff's deputy stopped the 53-year-old Gentry for a traffic violation about 10:19 p.m. Saturday on westbound U.S. Highway 56 near East 400 Road in eastern Douglas County. She was arrested and booked into the Douglas County Jail, where she was released on $250 bond and ordered to appear in court June 5.
Lawrence school district Supt. Randy Weseman said he was still investigating the situation and could not yet comment about how the incident might affect Gentry's job.
"I've barely had a chance to even talk to her," he said.
He said the district's policies don't specifically address what happens if an employee gets a DUI.
"Every situation has its own merits and circumstances, and we look at that," he said. "It would be premature for me to make any kind of judgment."
Gentry declined comment Monday evening.
