Platt High School's principal is on administrative leave after he was charged with a DUI in connection with an accident, Meriden Public Schools' superintendent Dr. Mark D. Benigni said.
"Robert Montemurro informed me that he had been involved in an accident," Benigni said in a statement. "At his request, Mr. Montemurro will be on leave and at this time we do not know low long that leave will be."
On Feb. 8, Montemurro was involved in a car accident.
Benigni said the board will be reviewing the situation and with "due regard for fairness" towards Montemurro.
