Elementary School Asst. Principal Arrested For Second DUI

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - An elementary school assistant principal was arrested overnight for DUI for the second time.

An affidavit said an officer stopped Shannon Hill after he ran a red light and almost hit another car around 11 p.m. Sunday at the corner of Tusculum Road and Blue Hole Road. Once he was stopped, the officer said he smelled like alcohol.

The affidavit said he failed sobriety tests, and struggled with officers who tried to place him under arrest.

Hill eventually agreed to a blood test and was charged with DUI, second offense; resisting arrest; and driving on a revoked license.

He was convicted of a DUI in May 2012, and his license was revoked. He was arrested for a DUI in November 2011, but refused to take a breathalyzer test and was cited for implied consent and reckless driving.

Hill is the assistant principal of Jones Paideia Magnet School. He has worked for Metro Nashville Public Schools since 1998.

His bond was set at $10,000. A court date was set for March 18.

Metro Schools said the school's employee relations office will be investigating to determine if any action will be taken.
