Iowa gym teacher was arrested Monday on suspicion of being drunk at work.
38-years-old Erin Ellerbach was taken into custody at Jefferson Middle School after police were called to the school after a physical education teacher had slurred speech, red and watery eyes and smelled of alcohol. A subsequent test showed she had a blood alcohol level of .224, nearly three times the legal limit for driving.
school officials discovered an open container of Mike’s Harder Strawberry Lemonade in her office along with two unopened cans of alcoholic beverages.
Ellerbach was fired from her position and is facing charges of public intoxication.
