NOVI, Mich. — She was suspended from her position as the principal of Novi's Deerfield Elementary School, and now Kim Warren, 44, has been charged under the city 'Super Drunk' ordinance.

Police video shows Warren sitting in the back seat of the scout car then slipping out of the handcuffs. She is then seen trying to hand the cuffs to the officer who tells her to hang on to them and not to throw them out of the window.

Novi Police say the results of two breathalyzer tests showed Warren registered .21 and then .20, more than twice the legal limit. The officer found an open bottle of vodka under Warren's feet when she was arrested in the parking lot of Deerfield Elementary just before 2:00 p.m. on April 8.
