The principal of a Catholic High School in Bardstown, Kentucky was cited by Louisville police on Halloween Eve for loitering with the purpose of prostitution, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.
Police allegedly saw the man dressed as a woman in an alley in a neighborhood known for drug trafficking and prostitution. He was reportedly dressed in a black leather outfit with fishnet stockings and fake breasts.
According to a statement from the Archdiocese of Louisville, Paul Schum, the principal of Bethlehem High School, requested personal leave from the school pending the outcome of the investigation. He denies the allegation.
Mr. Schum, 50, currently teaches chemistry at Bethlehem High School. He previously worked at St. Xavier High School in Louisville for 26 years.
Under Kentucky law, loitering for the purpose of prostitution is a violation for the first offense and a class B misdemeanor for subsequent offenses.
