Crime

WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — The principal of Wethersfield’s Highcrest Elementary School has been placed on administrative leave after he was arrested by Hartford Police on Saturday.

46-year-old John Bean was arrested at the Walmart on Flatbush Avenue just after 1:00 p.m. Saturday. Bean faces charges of interfering with police, and breach of peace.

He is scheduled to appear in court on September 28th.

In a statement released to News 8, Wethersfield Superintendent Michael T. Emmett says

I placed John Bean on administrative leave, effective September 26, 2016.

It would not be appropriate for me to comment regarding the circumstances leading to Mr. Bean’s arrest, as the matter remains under investigation.

As always, our most important priority is the continuity of high quality instruction for our students, and we are taking steps to ensure that the high level of instruction at Highcrest School will continue during Mr. Bean’s leave.
