STONINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Police say a man was arrested on a warrant as he reported to a Stonington elementary school to work as a substitute teacher.
The Day of New London reported (http://bit.ly/ZbgHec) that an administrator at West Vine Street School alerted police after he discovered that 48-year-old Norman Riley of Stonington was wanted in connection with a domestic disturbance.
The Day reported that Riley also has two convictions for driving with a suspended license.
It would have been Riley’s first day at the school. Officials say they’re looking into how Riley was hired, since applicants are supposed to undergo a background check.
Police said Riley was arraigned Friday on charges related to an Oct. 28 domestic dispute at his home. He’s slated to appear in court again Jan. 7.
A phone message was left Sunday for Riley.
