LATHAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Greene County principal is facing a trespassing violation after police say he was arrested for refusing to leave a Latham Diner.

Colonie Police say they responded to the 76 Diner in Latham just after midnight Sunday morning for a call regarding three intoxicated males who were refusing to leave the premises.

Upon arriving, officers claim all the men except for one left in a cab.

Police claim Nicholas Fitzgerald was highly intoxicated and refused to leave the establishment.

As a result, police say he was arrested on a trespassing violation and issued an appearance ticket. Mr. Fitzgerald told officers that he is the principal at Cairo-Durham High School.

The district’s superintendent says he is looking into the alleged incident.
