A teacher has been arrested for allegedly being drunk while teaching a class.
Brook Ellen West, 32, was arrested at Royal Spring Middle School in Kentucky on Monday after she allegedly admitted to drinking four shots of vodka at 11am, CBS-affiliate WKYT reports.
A student alleged West was swearing and yelling at students aged between 11 and 13.
West, a substitute teacher, returned a blood alcohol level of 0.317, police told the station.
Scott County Schools said the 32-year-old is no longer employed by the district after demonstrating “erratic behaviour”.
She’s been charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and endangering the welfare of a minor.
