    Principal admitted he pinched some male students' nipples, officials say.

    A Texas high school principal accused of pinching some students is being reassigned for the rest of the semester.

    Fort Worth schools spokesman Clint Bond said Monday the investigation found no evidence of sexual impropriety. But he says Douglas Williams' leadership effectiveness at Dunbar High has been compromised.

    District officials say Williams was disciplined after admitting he pinched some male students' nipples. He was placed on leave last month amid other allegations.

    Fort Worth police spokeswoman Sharron Neal says officers found the pinching was related to enforcing Dunbar's dress code. She says there was no sexual misconduct.

    Some students told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Williams was known for pinching teens in a playful way.

    Williams couldn't be reached for comment. It's unclear where he's being reassigned but it's believed he'll be working in an administrative capacity at the FWISDs Central Administration Building.

    Jannis Dilworth will continue acting as principal at Dunbar until further notice.
