Colorado school district superintendent facing DUI charges placed on administrative leave
WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (KKTV) - The superintendent for Woodland Park School District Re-2 has been placed on paid administrative leave.
The district cited “an external investigation” and demurred to elaborate further. 11 News partner The Gazette has reported the investigation concerns an arrest six weeks ago in Teller County for drinking and driving.
According to The Gazette, Superintendent Stephen Woolf, 58, hit a tree in his SUV and failed several roadside sobriety tests. He allegedly recorded a blood alcohol level of 0.114 -- 0.034 above the legal limit -- after voluntarily providing two breathalyzer samples at the Teller County jail, according to a report obtained by The Gazette.
Assistant Superintendent Linda Murray will be the interim superintendent, the district said Thursday.
