ADEL (AP) -

A high school principal who was arrested on suspicion of drunkenness at a University of Iowa football game will return to work on Monday.

The district school board voted Monday to let Adel DeSoto Minburn High School principal Lee Griebel resume his duties next week. Griebel was suspended after his arrest Sept. 6 in Iowa City.

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 failed a breath test for intoxication.

Court records do not list an attorney for Griebel.

District Superintendent Greg Dufoe said in a news release that, "Mr. Griebel made a serious mistake, and he accepts full responsibility for his actions."
