School Board candidate Dean Paterakis was charged with disrupting a school function and resisting an officer without violence Tuesday after he was ejected from a school board meeting dealing with LGBT issues.
Paterakis was released on $750 bond before midnight on the two misdemeanor charges.
Paterakis was asked by School Board chairman Andy Ziegler to step away from the speakers' podium after making what Ziegler said were inappropriate remarks. A school district security officer asked him to leave, and Paterakis refused. Sheriff's deputies then stepped in to ask Paterakis to leave, according to a statement from sheriff's spokesman Cpl. Dave Jacobs.
