ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Alaskas statewide law enforcement agency is investigating after two troopers escorted one of the state's top school principals to a hospital for a mental health assessment based on a bogus court order, officials said.

Mary Fulp, the principal at Colony High School in Palmer, north of Anchorage, broadcast the encounter with Alaska State Troopers live on Facebook Jan. 18.

Im getting taken to the hospital for claiming that Jesus is king and claiming that I stand with the Martin Luther King civil rights movement, she said. So, I would like this to show up in the news and for this to go viral because I am the 2022 Alaska Principal of the Year who loves Jesus with all her heart.

The incident began earlier in the day when someone asked troopers to conduct a welfare check on Fulp because she wasnt answering her door and he had concerns for her mental health.

Troopers determined that the adult female was not exhibiting signs of grave disability from a mental health issue and was not likely to cause serious harm to herself or others and therefore did not meet the conditions for emergency detention, troopers spokesperson Austin McDaniel said in a statement.
