A Michigan high school teacher was arrested Wednesday after he showed up at school drunk. Police said the teacher drove to work drunk and especially failed a Breathalyzer, blowing more than four times the legal limit.

The Lakeland High School teacher showed up to work 8 a.m. Wednesday, and administrators immediately suspected he was drunk due to his strange behavior. He admitted to consuming much alcohol that morning before driving to school, WXYZ reported.

A Breathalyzer test showed the teacher’s blood-alcohol content was .354 percent, or more than four times the state’s legal limit of .08 percent.

Lakeland High School Principal Paul Gmelin released a statement regarding the incident:

“I wanted to make you aware that a Lakeland staff member was escorted by the police from LHS today as a result of legal issues unrelated to students. A shelter in place was called so that students did not witness the situation. The staff member will not be on campus while this matter is pending. I cannot share any additional information at this time.”

The 44-year-old teacher, from West Bloomfield, is expected to be arraigned Thursday on charges of operating while intoxicated and driving on a suspended license, WDIV reports.

He also had a warrant out for his arrest on identical charges stemming from an October 2018 incident, the station reports.
