Many teachers will say their job drives them to drink, but luckily most of them do it outside of school hours.

A special education teacher in Kentucky was arrested Tuesday and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, after he was found in the parking lot of Evarts Elementary School, slurring his speech and smelling of alcohol. He refused a sobriety test.

Matthew Hubbard, the teacher in question, worked at the school for approximately two months prior to his arrest (prior to that it is said he worked in another county, doing who-knows-what, for many years). Pending the ongoing investigation, he has been suspended from his duties at the school.

Evarts Elementary School in Evarts, Kentucky is a PK-8 school within the Harlan County Public School System. According to GreatSchools it is about average in terms of math and reading proficiency, and while the student population is 96% white, it is also 83% low-income.
