A crowd-surfering Baldwinsville superintendent was praised by the students. The arrest then followed.

New York’s Baldwinsville — A special meeting has been scheduled by the Baldwinsville Board of Education two days after the district’s superintendent was detained for a DWI.

Jason D. Thomson, the 48-year-old superintendent of the Baldwinsville Central School District, was mingling with the gathering.

Students yelled, laughed, and took pictures of him flying over the spectators as they watched the Bees defeat the Raiders 23-6.

According to a video of the incident acquired by the regional ABC channel, WSYR, students gathered around Thomson as he was dropped and celebrated while leaping up and down.

According to a press statement from Baldwinsville Police Chief Michael W. Lefancheck, however, multiple students informed game workers that Thomson could have been under the influence after the flying administrator landed on the stands. The game’s police officers in Baldwinsville were informed by the staff members. In a statement to The Washington Post, Lefancheck claimed that alcohol is not sold at district sporting events.

A police officer observed Thomson driving without a front licence plate and making a turn without using his signal shortly after 8 p.m., an hour and a half after the scheduled start, according to a news release. Thomson was detained after the police pulled him over, checked his blood alcohol level, and charged him with operating a vehicle while drunk. According to authorities, Thomson had a blood alcohol content of 0.15, which is nearly double the New York state limit for safe driving.

Due to Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day, all district offices and schools are closed on Monday.

According to the district’s website, the board will speak about “a issue rendered secret by attorney-client privilege.”

According to the Baldwinsville police press release, Thomson was arrested and then released. On October 26, he is expected to appear in court.
