Mission Prep administrator accused of assault back at work

An administrator at Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School in San Luis Obispo has returned to work three weeks after he placed a student in a headlock during lunch. Photos show Russ Griffith, a former San Luis Obispo police officer, restraining a star of the football team in a carotid choke hold.

Following the alleged assault, police mounted an investigation. The SLO Police Department finished its investigation and it is now up to the district attorney’s office to determine whether or not to file assault charges.

School officials have declined to comment on the altercation. Even so, several students said a curse word prompted the alleged assault.

A carotid choke hold is generally used by law enforcement to restrain violent or combative individuals.

    I doubt it was a “carotid” choke hold. I’m pretty sure Russ was just trying to strongly convince a little jerk that his nasty conduct was not acceptable. We need more Russes… and less wooses.
