Dothan Principal Arrested For DUI and Assault

On March 17, Dothan Technology Center Principal Gregory Allen was arrested and taken to Dothan City Jail on a DUI charge.

According to the police report, Allen’s vehicle struck two motorcycles while traveling westbound on East Main Street. Neither of the motorcycle drivers suffered serious injuries, but one of the them was taken to the hospital. When police arrived at the scene, they stated that they could smell alcohol on Allen. Allen was unable to perform field sobriety tests, and was arrested and taken to the city jail. In the car with Allen at the time of the accident were his two grandchildren.

Unfortunately, Allen was arrested a second time in the same month. On March 29, police arrested Allen and transported him to jail and charged him with two misdemeanor counts of third-degree assault. Dothan Police Sgt. Rachel David stated that the two new assault charges are related to the DUI accident. David also confirmed Allen was charged with assault for the injuries suffered by each of the two motorcycle riders.

Allen has been placed on paid administrative leave while his case is being investigated.
