BOULDER, Colo. - Boulder High School Principal Kevin Braney was arrested this week following an incident at his home, according to the Boulder Daily Camera.
Braney's wife told officers the couple are divorcing.
Andrea Braney said she spent the evening removing some her belongings from her husband's room. She said when Braney came home from a work function and found some things changed, he started throwing things, damaging property and yelling at her.
Kevin Braney was arrested on suspicion of criminal mischief, domestic violence and child abuse for allowing a child to witness the incident, according to the report.
In a written, voluntary statement after his arrest, Braney said he was removing his belongings from hers and that he did not yell or touch her.
Kevin Braney is on paid leave from Boulder High School while he addresses personal and health issues, school district officials told the newspaper.
An email was sent to parents Friday.
Kevin Braney's attorney Todd Burnham told the newspaper, "I find it convenient that he is arrested and charged with criminal mischief and domestic violence contemporaneously with divorce papers being filed."
