JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Police say a Janesville elementary school teacher was drunk and passed out on a field trip with students last week.

According to a police report, Maria Caya, 50, got sick during a field trip with Washington Elementary School fourth grade students at River's Edge Bowl Thursday.

The police report indicates Caya's husband took her to a hospital after the field trip, where her blood-alcohol level registered 0.27 percent, which is more than three times the legal limit.  A hospital social worker is the one who called police, concerned Caya was supervising a group of children while intoxicated.
