COPY-Janesville teacher allegedly drunk on field trip
JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) - Janesville police say an elementary-school teacher who passed out while supervising a field trip to a bowling alley was legally drunk.
A Janesville Gazette report (http://bit.ly/11bgOCv ) says the 50-year-old was conducting a field trip that included fourth-graders from Washington Elementary School on Thursday. A police report says she became sick and passed out.
District spokesman Brett Berg says the teacher's husband took her home and later to a hospital, where her blood-alcohol level was 0.27%. That's more than three times the legal limit for driving.
It wasn't immediately clear whether the teacher drove on the trip, which had eight other supervisors. A message left for Berg on Monday wasn't immediately returned. However, he tells the Gazette the children remained safe at all times.
