(Scroll down for video) A drunk teacher had to be wheeled out of her classroom after vomiting on the floor in front of students, according to police in South Carolina.
The Lexington County Sheriff's Department said that they charged the teacher at the Lexington School District Two's Brookland-Cayce High School with disorderly conduct.
An administrator notified the school resource officer about the teacher who was intoxicated while in class. Judith Elizabeth Richards-Gartee, a 52-year-old Irmo resident, was found to be in possession of an open container of alcohol.
She was charged and released to the care of paramedics who transported her to the hospital. The teacher’s students reported that Richards-Gartee came into the classroom with a purse full of wine, and kept drinking.
She eventually vomited on the ground, and the students reported her to the principal. The teacher could not get up from her chair, and she was taken out with a wheel chair.
