A substitute teacher at Brookland-Cayce High School who lives in Irmo has been arrested after she showed up to work at the school drunk.
Judith Elizabeth Richards-Gartee was behaving erratically March 10 and reportedly had a box of wine in her handbag. Students told the deputy she was drinking the wine during class.
Richards-Gartee, 52, was charged with disorderly conduct, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
Richards-Gartee is not an employee of the district, but works for Kelly Services. Kelly contracts with the school district to provide substitute teachers.
The Administration responded immediately, removing her from the classroom and sending her to the School Resource Officer.
