Sheila Sammon Milosky, the principal at Paul Revere School in the city’s Bernal Heights neighborhood, was arrested on May 12 just south of the bridge on Highway 101, district attorney’s office spokesman Alex Bastian said.

Milosky is set to be arraigned Tuesday morning on misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run charges, Bastian said.

She allegedly struck two cars and then tried to drive away. She was found and arrested and allegedly had a blood-alcohol content above .08, according to Bastian.

Milosky’s attorney, Sam Ware, did not respond to requests for comment on the case.

Milosky previously drew criticism at Paul Revere School, which teaches pre-kindergarten to eighth grade students, for what some parents said were unfair regulations on campus.

The group Alliance of Californians for Economic Empowerment, which advocates for low-income and immigrant families, held a rally last October over rules instituted by Milosky that they said included demerits for students taking bathroom trips and prevented parents from volunteering at the school.

The group alleged that the moves were an attempt to get low-performing students to attend another school so Paul Revere’s test scores improve.

School district officials defended Milosky, who is in her second year at the school, saying that all complaints made by parents had been thoroughly investigated.
