Galveston Principal Busted in Adult Video Booth
Okay, pervy teachers and school administrators need to pass a resolution at the next Texas Masturbators Local Union meeting: no more jerkin' it in adult video stores, no matter how strong the urge. Because apparently police are conducting raids these days at decidedly non-peak Wanking Hours, like 9:45 a.m.
That's when Houston police arrested Galveston middle school assistant principal John Daniel Hayman, 33, for allegedly hanging out in a private booth at 24/7 Video Store, 9999 Gulf Freeway, with crystal meth on his person.
According to the Galveston Daily News, "the arrest came after a Houston Police Department Vice Division investigation into allegations of indecent exposure and prostitution at the business."
HPD Spokesman Keese Smith told the paper, "The officers asked all the customers to come into the common area, and as they approached one of the rooms, they found it to be locked. Management had a key to the room, and once the door was opened, Mr. Hayman was found inside."

Hayman was arrested without incident and released on $2,000 bond. He's now on paid administrative leave.
This is not the first time a school official has been busted at a video store, and we assume it won't be the last. And while we understand that even school employees sometimes have, uh, urges, folks like Hayman need to figure out a way to address them in a more discreet manner -- especially if they're going to (allegedly) add crystal meth to the mix. Seriously, no one's going to want to shake your hand at a parent-teacher conference after that shit.
We hope this will be resolved in a way that spares further embarrassment for everyone.
