The dean of students of the Regis High School on the Upper East Side was suspended following his arrest earlier this month for drug possession.
The private school released a statement confirming their dean of students, Nicholas deSpoelberch, seen above, was arrested on July 11.
The school's statement reads, "Regis takes those charges very seriously. We have zero tolerance for such activities, and as such Mr. deSpoelberch has been suspended pending further investigation."
Police in Wilton, Conn. say deSpoelberch had heroin and drug paraphernalia in his vehicle.
He was charged with possession of narcotics and is currently out on bond.
