BARRE, Vt. — Barre City’s middle school principal is facing a charge of driving under the influence or drugs.
Vermont State Police say Michael Dreiblatt of Manchester Center was arrested in Shaftsbury on Monday afternoon after being pulled over for a vehicle inspection violation. Police say he showed signs of impairment and they found a small amount of marijuana in his vehicle.
School Superintendent John Pandolfo said Tuesday afternoon that Dreiblatt is no longer working at the school. But would not elaborate, saying it’s a confidential personnel matter.
The 54-year-old Dreiblatt did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
He is scheduled to be arraigned in Bennington on March 26.
