Arizona teacher cited for being drunk in class
FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say an Arizona school teacher showed up to class drunk and continued drinking throughout the day.
Pinal County Sheriff's officials say students at Poston Butte High School in San Tan Valley called the main office Wednesday after 57-year-old Kathleen Jardine began cursing at them.
A responding deputy says Jardine admitted that she had drank the night before, that morning and during lunch in her classroom.
The deputy says the math teacher had a blood alcohol concentration level of .205.
Jardine, of Chandler, was cited for one count of consumption of alcohol in public but could face disorderly conduct charges.
Jardine was fired in 2011 from a school in New Mexico over a similar incident.
Florence Unified School District officials declined to comment, citing it as a personnel issue.
