Carroll left the Jay school district June 30 after being employed there for 16 years — 10 years as a principal and six years as a teacher.

In September, Carroll was arrested on complaints of defrauding a restaurant and resisting and obstructing a police officer after he refused to pay a $94.97 tab at a Bartlesville restaurant.

Carroll refused to pay the bill and told the manager that if he called the police, he would tell the officers that the restaurant was selling beer to minors, according to an affidavit.
