Maple Heights Superintendent Suspended for Pantsing the School Board Vice President

It feels really dumb to even bother sharing stories like this, given the disastrous week we're working through, but here we go: The Maple Heights superintendent pantsed the school board vice president at a football game the other night. He's been suspended for 10 days without pay.

"I immediately apologized; I think initially we were both in shock. He was offended and rightfully so, so in the end there's a consequence which I fully accept for what happened," superintendent Charles Keenan told Fox 8, which used the verb "depants."

School board president Pamela Crews drew a stark line in the sand: "It was really such a situation that went awry. We just want to get back to the kids; that is our focus, so we just want to get past all of this and move forward."
