Meet Judith Elizabeth Richards-Gartee of Lexington, South Carolina. Judith works as a substitute teacher, and like many people in the teaching profession, Judith needs a little something to take the edge off.
Well okay, a big something.
A substitute teacher at a Lexington 2 high school was so intoxicated that she threw up on the floor of the classroom and had to be taken to Lexington Medical Center.
The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department incident report claims the teacher, identified as Judith Elizabeth Richards-Gartee, 52, could not even stand up when a school administrator arrived.
“She had a box of wine in her bag that was opened, and students said she was consuming the wine during class,” the report said.
The report says Richards-Gartee was then placed in a wheelchair and rolled into the nurse’s office until EMS arrived to transport her to the hospital.
So in addition to being drunk inside a school, the Lexington Police arrested Judith for DUI. Heh.
