Feldstein says Smith "fired" him because he spoke to Channel 9. "We were kind enough to give you an assignment out of your licensed area, and you had to go and publicize it," he quotes Smith as saying.
Smith denies saying that to Feldstein; she says Feldstein was never hired in the first place. "I didn't even know he had been interviewed by the media," Smith says. "The reason why he was not asked back here is because he had not followed the proper procedure [for being hired]. Plus, he was extremely odd."
Smith wouldn't elaborate, except to say that Feldstein came to school one day in pajamas. Feldstein, however, says he doesn't even own a pair of pajamas, and since he was only driving through Denver on his way home, he didn't have a lot to wear.
Feldstein predicts he'll get the charges dismissed and maybe even get paid. "I'm extremely confident about this," Feldstein says. "I just don't see a chance in the world the other way."
