Oklahoma Teacher Arrested for Being Drunk on First Day of School VIDEO

A teacher in the southern Payne County city Perkins was arrested last week after authorities said she was under the influence of alcohol on the first day of school.

Kimberly Coates, 53, was confronted around 3:20 p.m. on Thursday by school resource officer Shane Dean and Perkins-Tryon School Superintendent Doug Ogle over appearing to be intoxicated in the classroom, the City of Perkins said in a statement.

Ogle told Coates that something “seemed off” and that she didn’t “seem like the same person” he talked to earlier that morning.

The third-grade teacher eventually agreed to take a breathalyzer test, during which she blew a whopping blood alcohol concentration of .24 — three times the legal limit of .08, officials said.

The teacher was arrested and transported to the Payne County Jail “on the anticipated District Court charge of Public Intoxication,” according to the statement.
