Oklahoma County Sheriff's deputies arrested a substitute teacher after students reported she was intoxicated and passed out in a classroom office at Millwood High School.

April Chamberlain, 30, was supposed to be acting as a substitute in a biology class. Students said she appeared disoriented and used profanity. When students found Chamberlain asleep in the office, they contacted a coach, who informed the principal.

The principal said after she repeatedly shouted and tapped Chamberlain on the shoulder, the substitute woke up. The principal said Chamberlain had blood-shot eyes and smelled strongly of alcohol.

When a deputy arrived, she saw an open bottle of Canadian Whisky in Chamberlain's purse. The deputy also noted Chamberlain kept slurring and was unsteady on her feet.

Chamberlain was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County jail for public drunkenness.
