ROYAL OAK, Mich. -

The principal of Royal Oak High School, Michael Greening, was arrested and arraigned Friday on charges of embezzling money from various student activity accounts.

Charges against Royal Oak principal:

He is charged with two counts of embezzlement ($1,000 or more but less than $20,000). The penalty, upon conviction, is up to five years in prison and/or a fine of $10,000 or three times the amount embezzled, whichever is greater.
