KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - A 19-year-old Kenosha School Board member is on the hot seat for a couple of recent incidents at UW-Parkside.
Media reports said Kyle Flood was cited last November for possessing drug paraphernalia in his Parkside dorm room, and he paid a $326 fine earlier this month.
Then last week, Flood was cited for breaking a door at an apartment on campus. Flood told the Kenosha News he didn't own the drug paraphernalia, but he made a "dumb decision" by possessing it.
He told WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee he would plead not guilty in his vandalism case, and would not otherwise comment on it.
Flood was elected to the Kenosha School Board last spring. Kristi LaCroix has started an online petition calling for his resignation, and about 300 people have signed it.
Flood says he will not resign. WTMJ says the School Board may consider a possible censure of Flood when it meets Tuesday night.
