Assistant Principal Charged with Felonious Assault
MAPLE HEIGHTS, OH – A Maple Heights school assistant principal has been charged with Felonious Assault after an altercation with his wife, according to the Chester Twp. police.
Authorities say they were called to the home of Robert McGruder on January 21 after a report of a domestic incident between McGruder and his wife. As a result of the investigation, officers arrested McGruder and charged him with Felonious Assault due to the injuries his wife received.
A temporary restraining order was filed by his wife on the day of his initial appearance in court.
According to the Maple Heights City School’s website, McGruder is the SC2 Assistant Principal at Maple Heights High School.
Maple Heights City Schools Superintendent Dr. Charles Keenan released the following statement:
Mr. McGruder was placed on paid administrative leave immediately after he self-reported his arrest to me. After taking the time last week to review all the information I was able to obtain regarding the incident that led to his arrest, as well as a deeper look into his background, I do not feel that Mr. McGruder is a threat to our children and have allowed him to return to work. Certainly any information to the contrary would change that decision.
