A local man who works with children was arrested for a DUI and resisting arrest -- after a Nassau County deputy found him with his genitals exposed.
It happened in Yulee at The Reserve at Amelia apartment complex.
Duval County Public Schools employee Michael Schletter was arrested for DUI, exposing sex organs and resisting arrest.
A DCPS employee was arrested for DUI, exposing sex organs and resisting arrest. We did some digging and found that he is listed as the Dean of students at Southside Middle School @ActionNewsJax pic.twitter.com/RGDSFPo6yY— Danielle Avitable (@DanielleANjax) May 30, 2018
Action News Jax obtained a Nassau County Sheriff’s Office incident report that states that earlier this month, Schletter was found passed out in a car that was parked across multiple parking spaces and, when he got out of the car, he “smelled highly of an alcoholic beverage.”
When he was found, the report states, the car’s motor was running and the headlights were on.
The report also states that Schletter’s genitals were out and he was asked several times to cover himself, but refused.
He was then arrested after failing to directly answer questions and follow commands.
We found Schletter’s Facebook page and LinkedIn account, which both show the title "Dean at DCPS."
We also found that title on the DCPS website, where he is listed as the dean of students at Southside Middle School.
Action News Jax reached out to the spokesperson of DCPS and was told that the district has an employee by that name.
We tried getting Schletter’s side of the story and, over the phone, he told us he is not guilty.
I called Michael Schletter on the phone and he told me he is not guilty. He now has a lawyer. What he said he was doing when he was arrested-- LIVE REPORT tonight at 10 @ActionNewsJax pic.twitter.com/Tvd0XLpFgH— Danielle Avitable (@DanielleANjax) May 30, 2018
“I probably would want you to call my lawyer. I wasn’t driving my car. I can say that. My pants were not off. I was wearing my pants. I was wearing shorts,” Schletter said.
Action News Jax also asked him to confirm that he is the dean at Southside Middle School, but he said he wanted to call his lawyer.
We also tried calling his lawyer, but the office was already closed so we left a voicemail.
Schletter said he self-reported the incident to the school district.
