COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – An elementary school assistant principal was arrested for driving under the influence on Sunday, April 8 around 1:40 a.m.

According to police, an off-duty officer at the Spring Fling Fair saw a 2008 black Dodge Charger travel through a barricade and into the Spring Fling pedestrian walkway.

The driver, 42-year-old Eric Grigsby, traveled throughout the fairgrounds, passing numerous rides and food vending stands.

Grigsby stated that he was attempting to turn around and didn’t realize he was at the fairgrounds.

The off-duty officer noticed Grigsby’s eyes were glossy and appeared to be under the influence of an unknown alcoholic beverage.

He told the officer he drank a beer or two prior to operating his vehicle due to ongoing personal problems.

Grigsby agreed to perform the Standardized Field Sobriety test and was later charged with DUI and open container of an alcoholic beverage while operating a vehicle. 

According to the Waddell Elementary website, Grigsby is listed as the assistant principal.
