0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Robert Adams is the Principal of Moriarty High School. On August 17, 2019, he was arrested for Driving Under the Influence, Open Container on his person or in the vehicle, and Reckless Driving.

As an educator and mentor for our children, Mr. Adams should be held to a higher standard than the average person. Being charged with DUI, Open Container and Reckless Driving sets a bad example for our children, and he should face punishment for it. This petition is asking that the Moriarty-Edgewood School District fire Robert Adams for not living up to the ethics placed on Educators and Faculty of our school district. 

The following is an excerpt from the story KRQE News 13 did on the case:

Moriarty High School Principal Robert Adams claimed another driver ran him off the road Friday night. However, police found a whole lot of liquor in his truck and on his breath.

Officers found Adams walking along Skyline Drive after 9 p.m., just a few doors down from his home after someone called 911 and said there had been a crash.

Officers said they found Adams covered in dirt with blood on his shirt. They also found his truck with heavy damage, including a crushed roof, indicating the vehicle had rolled over.

According to the criminal complaint, his eyes were bloodshot and watery. His speech was slurred. He smelled like alcohol, and he was swaying back and forth. Inside the truck, officers found an opened fifth of Jim Beam Vanilla and an opened fifth of Jameson.

The officer said Adams admitted to drinking but agreed to a breath test. He blew a .17, which is more than twice the legal limit.
