WAUKEE, Iowa -- A Waukee High School Assistant Principal has resigned from the school following what the school is calling an "internal investigation."
Josh Smith resigned this morning, according to the school.
A press release from the district says staff were "notified of a personal situation involving" Smith. An internal investigation was then launched and Smith resigned. The school district isn't commenting on what the personal situation or if police are involved.
A recent police report stated that Smith and a 17-year-old student at Waukee High School are involved in an extortion investigation.
According to a police report, the investigation began Friday morning on the Waukee High School property.
The student was arrested and charged.
Smith is listed as the victim of the crime, which involved $1,350 in cash.
