Calif. principal arrested with drugs, unconscious woman

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - Police say the principal of a private Marin County high school was arrested after he was found in a hotel room with large quantities of drugs and a passed-out woman roughly 30 years younger than him.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports 54-year-old Thomas Price was taken into custody Friday at the Hyatt Place in Rancho Cordova. Deputies say Price, the principal of Branson High School in Ross, was in possession of heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.

Also in the room was 21-year-old Brittney Hall, who was also arrested.

Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos says the pair could face charges including possession of drugs with intent to sell or distribute.

It wasn't immediately known if Price or Hall have lawyers.

Calls to Branson High School were not returned Monday.
