Substitute Teacher Arrested for Teaching while Drunk

(AP) — Lexington County deputies have charged a substitute teacher they say was drunk while in class at Brookland-Cayce High School.

Authorities tell local media outlets 52-year-old Judith Elizabeth Richards-Gartee was charged Friday with disorderly conduct.

Deputies say an administrator at the Cayce school notified a resource officer at the school that the substitute was drunk. Authorities say Richards-Gartee had an open container of alcohol.

Richards-Gartee was taken to a hospital. It wasn't immediately clear if she had an attorney.
