A woman is behind bars after deputies say she was teaching while drunk at a Scott County middle school.
An arrest citation said 32 year-old Brook Ellen West was arrested Monday after she admitted to authorities she took four vodka shots around 11 a.m. A student at Royal Spring Middle School said West was yelling and cursing at students.
Deputies say West, who is a substitute teacher, smelled like alcohol and was unsteady on her feet. She had a .317 blood alcohol content when she took a breathalyzer test.
The students in the classroom were ages 11-13.
West is charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and endangering the welfare of a minor. She was placed in the Scott County Detention Center.
