Wisconsin teacher allegedly drunk on elementary field trip

JANESVILLE, Wis. -- Janesville police say an elementary school teacher who passed out while supervising a field trip to a bowling alley was legally drunk.

JANESVILLE, Wis. - Janesville police say an elementary school teacher who passed out while supervising a field trip to a bowling alley was legally drunk.

A Janesville Gazette report says the 50-year-old was conducting a field trip that included fourth-graders from Washington Elementary School on Thursday. A police report says she became sick and passed out.

District spokesman Brett Berg says the teacher's husband took her home and later to a hospital, where her blood-alcohol level was 0.27 percent. That's more than three times the legal limit for driving.

It wasn't immediately clear whether the teacher drove on the trip, which had eight other supervisors. A message left for Berg on Monday wasn't immediately returned. However, he tells the Gazette the children remained safe at all times.

The teacher wasn't arrested.
