Mad World News: The head of a private California school has found himself in a bit of a sticky situation after he was caught with a young woman in a hotel room under horrible circumstances.
According to KTVU-TV, 54-year-old Thomas Price, known as Woody (conveniently), has been living a double life and was found with an unconscious 21-year-old woman, surrounded by drugs, in a Rancho Cordova hotel room on Friday.
Not only is Price a husband and father, he has been an educator for decades. He was also the well-respected head of the Branson School, a college preparatory school, since 2006 until Friday’s incident caused him to resign.
Sgt. Jason Ramos from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said that Price was arrested Friday afternoon after a man called dispatch to report concerns about his friend, Brittany Hall. He told the dispatcher she was with an older man who may have been giving her drugs, then the concerned friend gave the police the hotel and room number for them to respond.
Upon their arrival at the Hyatt, Price answered the door and tried to tell deputies that there was nothing to be concerned about. However, they could see into the room and saw Hall passed out on the bed.
Sgt. Ramos said deputies tried to shout her name several times from the doorway, but she was unresponsive, and that’s when they entered the room and found a “den of drug activity.” It took several minutes to revive the woman, and deputies said there were drugs everywhere.
Both Hall and Price were charged with several felonies, including possession with intent to sell, due to the amount of drugs in the room. Investigators believe the two have been carrying on a casual relationship for years, involving sex and drugs.
Price was released on bail and is set to appear in court on November 24.
