Principal John Grady's Really, Really, Really Bad Day

It seems as though there's been another instance of gunplay down in the Lone Star State:
ODESSA, Texas — A junior high principal who allegedly fired a gun on school property turned himself in Thursday on a felony weapons charge, officials said.

Van Grady, 57, posted $10,000 bond on a charge of possession of a weapon in a prohibited area.

The Crockett Junior High School principal allegedly fired the shot Feb. 24 in his office, sending a bullet through a wall and into a hallway. No one was injured and officials said classes were not disrupted.

Grady initially attributed the sound to firecrackers but authorities found two pistols in his vehicle on campus while executing a search warrant. Ector County Independent School District officials placed Grady on paid administrative leave and said he would be replaced.
Heh. Maybe all the pressure caused by the TAKS Testing Season finally got to him.
