Tonopah Principal Arrested

The principal of Tonopah High School is behind bars facing open and gross lewdness and child abuse charges after Nye County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested him on Monday.

According to a press release, Alvin L. Eiseman, 57, was taken into custody after a female juvenile reported Eiseman allegedly touched her breast.

A second juvenile was allegedly punched in the arm by Eiseman.

The incident occurred on Feb. 25, according to sheriff’s deputies.

The investigation took place over the course of several days after deputies interviewed the alleged victims and the principal.

“At the completion of the investigation and review of all information gathered, deputies determined that probable cause for the arrest of Eiseman was present,” the release stated. “Eiseman was booked into the Tonopah Detention Facility without incident. The Nye County School District was notified and has taken precautionary measures to ensure the safety of the children in school.”
