Elementary School Principal Charged With Aggravated Assault With Deadly Weapon

A Florida elementary school principal was charged after she allegedly drove a BMW at a neighbor and their friend before sticking two middle fingers up at them, according to reports.

An arrest report seen by Newsweek said Orange County Police Department officers arrested Kimrey Sheehan, 60, on Monday and charged her with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The principal, who has been in her position at Hunter's Creek Elementary for nearly 10 years, is alleged to have driven a gray BMW toward her neighbor, David Gordon, and a dog walker on July 20.

According to an incident report obtained by WKMG-TV, Sheehan had been "flicking" them off, raising two middle fingers at them during the incident.

The report then said Sheehan pulled the BMW into her driveway.

Deputies had initially tried to make contact with Sheehan but were unable to at the time of the incident.

In a statement shared with WKMG-TV, Gordon's attorney said: "Unfortunately, this is not the first time Mr. Gordon has been the victim of a crime at the hands of Ms. Sheehan.

"Mr. Gordon is looking forward to justice being served and an end to justice being served and an end to Ms. Sheehan's violent and escalating behavior towards hum and the otherwise peaceful neighborhood of Lake Hart."

Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) superintendent James Larsen shared a message with parents about the arrest and said it was "personal in nature."

Sheehan has since been placed on relief of duty pending an internal investigation that will be carried out by OCPS.

The Orange County Police Department arrest report seen by Newsweek said Sheehan is being held on a $20,000 bond.

One of Sheehan's neighbors, Andrew McCoy, spoke to WKMG-TV about the arrest and appeared to be shocked.

He said: "It's not something I would have expected especially from this neighborhood just moving here. To go to these lengths, that's ridiculous."

Newsweek has contacted the Orange County Public Schools for comment.

According to the Florida-based Pumphrey Law firm, a person convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a third-degree felony, could face up to five years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.

The number of years behind bars increases if the deadly weapon involved in the assault is a gun or destructive device, "such as a pipe bomb."
