An Oklahoma educator faced arrest on the inaugural day of elementary classes last week due to alleged intoxication during her teaching, as confirmed by the officials.
53-year-old Kimberly Coates was approached by school resource officer Shane Dean and the Perkins-Tryon School Superintendent, Doug Ogle, at around 3:20 p.m. on Thursday over suspicions of inebriation, as per a statement from the City of Perkins.
Officer-worn bodycam footage showing Coates' engagement with Ogle and the local police was accessed by Fox News Digital from the Perkins Police Department.
During their conversation, Ogle expressed to Coates that she "seemed off" and didn't appear as the "same person" he had spoken to earlier that day.
Coates mentioned she had taken anxiety medication the previous evening but struggled to specify which one. Subsequently, the third-grade educator consented to a breath test, which revealed a blood alcohol level of .24, surpassing the legal limit of .08 by three times, as indicated by the authorities.
Perkins Police Sgt. Spencer Gedon commented to KWTV, "That’s not just one drink and you’re there. That’s several drinks."
As per the bodycam footage, Coates disclosed that she consumed alcohol late the previous night and even as she drove to school the following day.
When Ogle retrieved a bag from Coates' classroom, the video captured him setting down an empty blue plastic cup, which reportedly had an alcoholic aroma.
Confronting Coates, Ogle asked, "No more games, right? What is in that?"
"My juice," responded Coates.
Upon inspection by the school resource officer, he challenged Coates, saying, "Want to try again? That there is wine."
However, Coates clarified that she had used the cup the previous day. She went on to tell the officer about her counseling sessions but admitted they hadn't aided her alcohol issues.
When Coates declined to arrange for someone to collect her from the school premises, the police proceeded with her arrest and led her out of the school.
She was subsequently transported to the Payne County Jail, with expectations of her facing charges of public intoxication.
Following this incident, the school district communicated with the parents, clarifying that due to this being "a personnel issue," they are unable to provide further details at the moment.
