(MARIN COUNTY, Calif.) — Former high school principal Thomas Woodrow Price’s problems have just begun after police in Marin County, California, said they found the 54-year-old inside a motel room with a stockpile of illegal drugs and an unconscious 21-year-old woman.

Price, better known as “Woody,” was the headmaster of the exclusive Branson High School, which costs $40,000 annually to attend. He resigned Tuesday.

Things started to fall apart for Price, according to prosecutors, when police, acting on a tip, went to a motel room in Rancho Cordova last Friday and discovered Price inside with a passed-out young woman who they eventually roused without medical help.

More seriously, cops say they arrested Price on possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine for sale and possession of cocaine.

He apparently told them he had a “causal relationship” with 21-year-old Brittney Hall, who was also charged with drug possession. Price later made bail.
