Posted: Updated:

A high school principal was placed on administrative leave after he was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication at the University of Iowa game.

Lee David Griebel, 44, of Adel, was arrested Saturday at Kinnick Stadium at the University of Iowa game against Ball State University, the Des Moines Register reported. He was booked at the Johnson County Jail and later released.

Griebel is the principal at Adel DeSoto Minburn High School in Adel. He has been placed on administrative leave, according to the Greg Dufoe, superintendent of Adel DeSoto Minburn Community School District. He will remain on leave as the district determines a course of action.

Griebel was found at the stadium sitting near a garbage can with vomit on his shorts and a pile of vomit near him, according to a University of Iowa news release. Police said he had an unsteady balance and blew a .222 on a preliminary breath test.

Court records do not list an attorney for Griebel.
