MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The assistant principal at Milford’s Harborside Middle School is facing harassment charges.
Police tell the New Haven Register that Steven Marchetti of Seymour is due in court on Oct. 17.
According to an arrest warrant, the teacher says Marchetti has been harassing her with texts, emails and phone calls since she tried to break off their friendship in the spring.
Police say he was warned in June to stop and School Superintendent Elizabeth Feser says Marchetti was put on paid administrative leave on Aug. 22.
He was arrested Wednesday, a day after the teacher received flowers at her office, which included a personal note.
Police say Marchetti was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. A message seeking comment was left Sunday at a number listed for Marchetti.
