A Kennedy High School assistant baseball coach arrested for allegedly smoking pot with some students during an outing to a Dodgers game was fired, school district officials said Tuesday.
Pedro Cruz Trujillo, 24, was arrested Monday and booked on suspicion of child endangerment, police said. His bail was set at $600,000 bail.
Word got out at the school that Trujuillo had smoked pot May 18 with a group of six students 14-16 years.
"It is alleged that Trujillo and some of the students in his car smoked marijuana on the way to and from the event," Los Angeles police said.
Trujillo may be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, police said.
School district spokeswoman Ellen Morgan said Trujillo was removed from the campus in May, shortly after school officials heard about what happened. Trujillo was an assistant baseball coach and an educational aide, she said.
"Once arrested by LAPD and charged with child endangering involving marijuana, Trujillo was fired from both of his positions with the district," Morgan stated.
