Teacher Arrested, Accused of Teaching While Drunk

It must be a particularly rough school year: A week after a teacher got charged with being drunk (and pants-challenged) at school, another has been charged with getting drunk in her own classroom. As KTVK reports, a student in Kathleen Jardine's math class in San Tan Valley, Ariz., called the main office because Jardine seemed blitzed and was yelling at students. Though she denied it at first, the 57-year-old soon fessed up to drinking in her classroom during lunch, and a school security officer found vodka and wine in her purse. She got cited for public intoxication and might face disorderly conduct charges, reports the Arizona Republic. (More weird crimes stories.)
