PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) - The principal of a northwest Missouri high school has resigned after being arrested in a prostitution sting.

KCTV reports (http://bit.ly/QJqhyQ ) 37-year-old Patrick N. Martin resigned Monday, citing personal reasons.

Martin was given a misdemeanor citation after he was arrested on Sept. 26.

Police allege Martin was arrested after he met a woman at a hotel and agreed to pay for sex acts. The woman was a Kansas City police detective. The meeting was arranged through an Internet ad soliciting a date.

Platte County Superintendent Mike Reik. Alan Burch was named interim principal.
