EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- What do you call a high-five that misses? Many would just call it awkward, but an El Paso school principal calls it assault. The misfire came last week when schools superintendent Lorenzo Garcia was giving principals high-fives while celebrating state test scores. When Garcia came to Barron Elementary School principal Mary Helen Lechuga and she didn't raise her hand, he tapped her on the head instead.
But Lechuga - a former district administrator who was recently demoted - filed a police complaint saying she felt pain and feared what he might do next.
Garcia said she's a disgruntled employee and her complaint is petty.
The El Paso Times reported Thursday that school district police are investigating.
Ordinarily I'd have commented "only in America" but sadly I don't feel this is the case any more. Nowadays people seem to want to get rich quick and will do anything to achieve this goal. What a sad and desperate place this world is becoming. :-(
