(WSB-TV) — A Clayton County high school senior was suspended weeks before his graduation after he posted his principal’s mugshot on the social media website Instagram, claiming she was arrested for the wrong thing.

The student’s family told Channel 2’s Tom Jones nowhere in the student handbook does it say you can get suspended for passing misinformation.

But that’s what the principal said Keandre Varner did by posting her mugshot and saying he thought she had been arrested on DUI charges.

“I didn’t like, really didn’t intend to defame her character,” said Varner, a senior at Riverdale High School.
