An Indiana elementary school principal was placed on leave from work after police say they stopped him driving home from a Halloween party drunk -- and in a dress.

Police say Tracy Tredway's blood alcohol level was .188 percent when he was pulled over on the way back from a bar in Argos, Ind., early Nov. 1, WSBT.com reported.

Tredway was photographed for his mug shot in a pink dress, presumably part of his costume. Marshall County Sheriff's officers said he also was wearing a wig and high heels, and they stopped him when they noticed he was walking unsteadily toward his car.

Tredway, the principal at Riddle Elementary School in Rochester, Ind., faces preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and endangering another person, WSBT.com said.

Tredway was placed on administrative leave pending further review, according to the school superintendent.
