Nicholas County Principal Suspended

A principal accused of beating up a student on campus is now suspended.

A spokesperson for the county board of education says Joe Orazen is no longer being paid by Nicholas County. Orazen was caught on tape allegedly throwing a high school student to the ground after an argument over a cell phone.

The board says Orazen has the right to request a hearing from the Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Education.
