WINCHESTER (CBS) — A third grade teacher in Winchester was arrested after allegedly showing up to class drunk.

Theresa Davis was removed from her classroom by administrators at Susan LaVorgna Elementary School just after noon Thursday when co-workers discovered she was seemingly intoxicated.

Davis, whose classroom was occupied by 23 third-graders, had reportedly written an illegible hall pass for a student.

Deputies arrested Davis on suspicion of child endangerment. She was detained briefly, then turned her over to the custody of a family member, according to sheriff’s officials.

The case has been submitted to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office for review.
