ATHENS, AL (WAFF) - A Tanner High School teacher is on leave after she was arrested at school for allegedly being drunk in the classroom this week.
An on-site investigation conducted by Limestone County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) deputies turned up alcohol containers, both full and empty. Edwards also told deputies she had ingested "prescribed" Xanax and Klonopin, two powerful benzodiazepines.
Edwards, a family and consumer sciences teacher, refused a breathalyzer test and was ultimately arrested. She was transported to the Limestone County Jail, where she was to be held until she sobered up.
Edwards has since been released on $1,000 bond.
The LCSO arrest narrative was released Thursday as part of the official court filings:
Edwards is scheduled to be arraigned on April 24 at 9 a.m.
