Principal Arrested After Being Found Smoking Pot With Student

A Florida principal of a high school of last resort was found smoking marijuana in her car with her shirt unbuttoned alongside a male student, police say.  North Palm Beach authorities say Krista Morton, 45, was found in her car after police responded to a call about some suspicious behavior Wednesday.  The caller believed someone was having sex or fighting in the car.  When police arrived, they say it reeked of marijuana and found a container of the drug in the back seat.

When an officer initially knocked on the window, the principal of Mavericks High charter school in Palm Springs told them she and the 18-year-old student were ‘just friends’ and that she’d picked him up on the side of the road because she was lonely and wanted to get to know him, the Sun-Sentinel reports.  However, according to the police report, Morton’s blouse was unbuttoned ‘exposing her shoulders and part of her chest.’

Police say Morton declined to say whether she’d smoked marijuana but said marijuana had been smoked inside the car.
Police found 20 grams of marijuana, rolling papers and a lighter in the car.  The student had previously been arrested for marijuana possession.
