Fort Worth principal fired after May arrest

Fort Worth principal has been fired a month after her arrest on a public intoxication charge after she allegedly left her two preschool-age children alone at a Dallas hotel.

School trustees on Tuesday night voted to fire Carla Westbrook-Spaniel of Arlington. She had been principal of Elder Middle School for nearly four years. Superintendent Melody Johnson declined comment on the dismissal, describing it as a personnel issue.

Assistant Principal James Garcia will assume the duties of
Westbrooke-Spaniel, who was arrested May 8. Dallas police say the woman, whose children are ages 3 and 4, scuffled with a bouncer and officers when she was denied entry into a nightclub. Police later charged Westbrook-Spaniel with two counts of child endangerment.
