A Turlock man avoided the principal's office, but not trouble.
Kenneth Bias, 51, entered the Turlock High School office on Wednesday morning and asked to buy a fifth of vodka. He apparently thought he was in a liquor store, according to Turlock police.
When his request turned up empty, he left.
However, police found him staggering down East Canal Street, where he was arrested for public intoxication, police said.
