Student Drank Vodka from Teacher’s Water Bottle, Teacher Fired and Arrested in Georgia

A teaching assistant at a middle school was terminated and later jailed after a student was accused of drinking vodka from a water bottle that she brought to school. The kid was allegedly responsible for the incident.

Alexandra Lambert, who is 39 years old, admitted to bringing a bottle that was filled with vodka to school, but she claimed that it was a mistake. This is according to the officials who investigated the incident.

Morgan County Middle School was the location where it took place.

“At first, I thought the bottle was filled with Mountain Dew,” the student explained to the officials. However, after giving it some thought, he realized that it was actually something else entirely. After that, he disposed of the beverage and informed all of the other teachers at the school about the incident. Subsequently, the teacher brought the situation to the attention of the principal.

Almost immediately after that, the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the school premises. The breathalyzer test that the deputies administered to Lambert revealed that her blood alcohol level was 0.259. When compared to the legal limit for driving in Georgia, which is 0.08, this is more than three times the limit.

After being taken into custody, Lambert was placed under arrest and issued a citation for disorderly conduct with public intoxication.

It was only after she was taken into custody that the school became aware of a statement stating that Lambert is no longer employed by the department.

According to the New York Post, the school system stated further that “the safety of our staff and students is of the utmost importance, and we take all incidents seriously.” Because we have zero tolerance for any behavior that could put their health in jeopardy, we have a strict policy.
