Charter board discussed chairman in closed-door session, despite Sunshine Law prohibition

From The Greeley Tribune:  The chairman of the Board of Governors for University Schools has resigned in the wake of a felony charge of assaulting a police officer, stemming from a drunken episode at The Greeley Chophouse.

Willoughby Hume was arrested Feb. 13 on suspicion of disorderly conduct after causing a scene at the upscale, downtown Greeley restaurant, according to a Greeley Police Department arrest affidavit. He later was charged with two counts of assault on a police officer, including one felony.

Hume, who has been a board member at University Schools, a west Greeley charter school, for about five years, offered his resignation March 9, University Schools lawyer Eric Carlson said.

The incident took place during a dinner Feb. 13 with fellow board member Kara Harvey.

Harvey told police she believed Hume, who is married, wanted to become more than just friends. When she said she wasn’t interested, Hume became upset and began yelling and cursing in the restaurant, according to the affidavit.

Hume also was aggressive with a man who tried to get Hume to stop yelling at Harvey. Hume pushed that man, according to the affidavit.
