Brooklyn's 'Toxic Preschool' Head: Families' $$$ Went Up His Nose

It turns out that Andy Lewis -- the guy who ran Boerum Hill's "toxic preschool," the Brooklyn Children's Academy (left) and allegedly stole thousands from a wide range of families, teachers, landlords and the United States Dept. of Agriculture -- has many problems. One of them is a big fat coke habit.

That's one of the many little details that came out at yesterday's court appearance, as reported by the Brooklyn Eagle.

A representative from Pretrial Services told Brooklyn Federal Court Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto that Lewis "tested positive for cocaine eight times since testing began about four months ago, and has evaded many of the mandated tests. 'He has repeatedly manipulated the system, repeatedly failed to show up for drug tests,' she said."

Join the club. Parents and teachers who have dealt with Lewis also feel that they were manipulated. Dozens of them were never paid back the thousands of dollars Lewis took from them in the form of preschool deposits and tuition. Now we know where their money is -- up Lewis' nose.
