First Grade Teacher Accused Of Being Drunk At School

VALPARAISO, Ind. -- A first-grade teacher from Valparaiso was arrested at school Thursday on suspicion of public intoxication, police said.

Sharon Duerring, 49, had two cans of beer in her purse at the time of her arrest at Cooks Corners Elementary School, police said.

School officials removed Duerring from a classroom and called police when they suspected she was drunk, police said.

A portable breath test showed her blood-alcohol concentration was 0.20 percent, more than twice the legal driving limit of 0.08 percent, according to police.

A Porter County Jail officer said Duerring was released Thursday on bond. The Associated Press couldn't reach her for comment because there was no phone number listed under her name.
