Comments Off on Queens high school principal Carl Hudson Jr. arrested for possession of methamphetamine

A Queens high school principal was nabbed just a block away from his school  when cops found a baggie of methamphetamine in his car during a traffic stop, police said.

Carl Hudson Jr., 33, was around the corner from Flushing High School on  Northern Blvd. about 8:35 p.m on Tuesday when police discovered the meth in the  bag in the car’s center console, police said.

Hudson, whose salary is $133,834 a year, was arraigned on drug charges but  pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct at his arraignment Wednesday night,  officials said. He was sentenced to a conditional discharge, which means he must  stay out of trouble with the law for a year or the charges will be  revisited.

His father, Carl Hudson Sr., 55, said he was “disappointed” when he heard  about his son’s arrest.

“He probably got in with some bad people,” Hudson Sr. said by phone from his  Atlanta home. “But he’s a good boy. I sent him to Cornell, NYU, the Ivy League  for a reason — he was a straight-A student.”

The city Education  Department said Hudson Jr. had already been assigned to an  administrative post away from the school.

He began his career with the Education Department in September 2002 as a  substitute math teacher and was appointed principal at Flushing High School in  March 2011.
