WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania school district superintendent has been charged with drunken driving.
State police charged West Mifflin Superintendent Daniel Castagna with speeding, careless driving, drunken driving and other charges stemming from a Beaver County traffic stop about 3 a.m. Sept. 22. Castagna isn’t commenting because he’s yet to receive the police complaint in the mail.
Parents in the district were upset to learn of the charges Thursday, a day after Castagna announced that an unnamed assistant coach has been placed on leave while the district investigates alleged “inappropriate behavior” with a former student.
Outraged parents packed a school board meeting Thursday night demanding answers about both sets of allegations, but were told both are confidential personnel matters unless and until criminal charges are resolved.
