4/21/2011 - Grove City Area School District Threatened with Suit - Click here to print this information

A Grove City man has threated to sue his school district to prevent someone awaiting trial for drunk driving from taking the superintendent's job.

The Grove City Area School Board voted to hire 48-year-old Richard Mextorf for the $127,000 per year job earlier this month. However, Mextorf faces charges for driving while his blood-alcohol content was nearly four times the legal limit.

According to WKBN-TV, resident Jason Reeher said the arrest means Mextorf doesn't meet the district's standards for ethics and integrity.

Mextorf resigned as superintendent of the State College School District after his November arrest in Clinton County. Online court records show he could face trial as early as next month.

The school board president said Mextorf was very candid about his arrest, and that he came with glowing recommendations and was the believed to be the "best candidate" for the job.
