FENTRESS COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Fentress County Sheriff Michael Reagon said a Jamestown elementary school teacher was arrested for public intoxication while at school.
The teacher, Jennifer Choate, was arrested at York Elementary on November 29. Choate failed a breathalyzer, testing .15, nearly twice the legal limit.
Sheriff Reagon said Choate was working the day of her arrest, and was arrested on school grounds. After spending five hours in jail, Choate was released on bail. She is set to appear in court Wednesday.
Reagon said his investigation into the matter is closed, however the matter remains open within Fentress County Schools.
"This is an ongoing investigation," Fentress County Director of Schools Mike Jones said in a statement.
