Sheila Sammon Milosky, the sort of unpopular principal at San Francisco's Paul Revere Elementary School has made headlines again -- but this time for an alleged drinking and driving incident.

According to the Marin IJ, Milosky, a Mill Valley resident, was busted May 12, 2012 when a white 2011 Dodge Avenger with a Colorado license plate allegedly hit a Hyundai Tucson and a Lincoln Town Car just south of the Golden

Gate Bridge."The Avenger didn't stop and continued heading north. The victims

pulled over at Vista Point and called the CHP, which tracked down the

suspect car," according to the Marin IJ.

Turns out, the person driving the suspected Avenger was 50-year-old Milosky, who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the

influence and hit and run.

We contacted San Francisco Unified School District to find out what hey had to say about this. Gently Blythe, spokeswoman for the district,  says they are very aware of the incident, but that it's not necessarily a reason to fire Milosky.

"If she is convicted, by California law, a misdemeanor conviction in itself is not grounds for termination. This incident occurred on a weekend and is unrelated to school activities," Blythe said. "We have been in contact with Ms. Milosky about this matter and will continue to monitor the situation."

As readers might recall, Milosky came under fire last year when students and parents railed against her, saying she exercised corporal punishment and much-too-strict policies at the Bernal Heights elementary school. Parents demanded the new principal be removed from her post and went as far as to circulate a petition. Parents complained that she limited bathroom breaks and kids were wetting their pants.

Milosky denied the accusations, and obviously managed to dodge those charges. But will she be able to dodge these?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
