Teacher arrested for public intoxication

A first-grade teacher from Valparaiso is free on bond after she was arrested at school for public intoxication. Police say 49-year-old Sharon Duerring had two cans of beer in her purse at the time of her arrest.

Officials at Cooks Corners Elementary School removed Duerring from the classroom and called police when they suspected she was drunk. A portable breath test showed her blood alcohol concentration to be 0.20 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Police say she was given a trespass warning not to return to the school.

A Porter County Jail officer says Duerring was released on bond. The Associated Press couldn’t reach her for comment because there was no phone number listed under her name.
