The newly-hired La Crescent-Hokah school superintendent finds himself in court, accused of disorderly conduct and domestic assault.
Superintendent Eric Martinez was arrested at his La Crescent home late Thursday night. A judge has ordered him not to use alcohol or drugs.
Martinez was booked into the Houston County jail in Caledonia, Minn., early Friday morning. He made a brief court appearance later in the day.
Martinez was released from jail, and scheduled for another court hearing Dec. 7.
The 51-year-old Martinez has been with the La Crescent district for four months, coming to the area from the Waubun school system in northwestern Minnesota, near Fargo, N.D.
