It could have been 'hasta la vista, baby  but instead he'll be back. A principal in Everett Mass., has been suspended for two days after creating a spoof video of "The Terminator" movies that was shown to students.

In the video Everett High School Principal Erik Naumann presents himself as "the Naumannator" and depicts himself walking thorough the empty hall of the school dressed up like Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous character.

Naumann appeared with his attorney at a closed door school committee meeting on Monday to discuss the content of the video which some deemed to be too violent in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

Naumann has since apologized for the video and many students and parents stand behind him. He will not be "terminated" as a result of the incident.
