When officers arrived, the orchestra instructor reportedly galloped toward them, flailing his arms and giggling uncontrollably, Kennesaw police said.
According to the report, he told officers, “this was done in love” and that he was “on the space shuttle,” while repeatedly ignoring their commands. Two officers on scene forced him to the ground and handcuffed him before carrying him to the back of the patrol car with his legs dangling in the air, police said.
Schroter’s warrant alleges that he was under the influence of a drug at the time, “possibly LSD, cocaine, ecstasy, or (a) synthetic/natural hallucinogen.”
He also had a puppy in his Mazda at the time of the crash. The dog was turned over to Cobb County Animal Control.
Schroter is charged with aggravated assault, driving under the influence of drugs, reckless driving, obstruction of law enforcement, driving too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane, jail records show. He was released the following morning on a $16,720 bond.
His employment status with the high school is unclear.
“The district is aware of the arrest of a Kennesaw Mountain High School teacher,” a Cobb School District spokeswoman said in a statement Wednesday. “Due to privacy restrictions, the district cannot provide additional information during an ongoing investigation. We will act in accordance with any relevant district policy upon the conclusion of the police investigation.”
