MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A Chickasaw, Alabama teacher has been arrested for allegedly driving drunk on her way to school.

Police pulled 42-year-old Suzanne Morrison over on Tuesday morning after noticing her silver car driving erratically on Interstate 10.

The officer said Morrison downed a drink once she was pulled over and they noticed a strong smell of alcohol when she rolled down the window.

Police say she failed both the breathalyzer and field sobriety test and was booked into the Mobile County Metro Jail.

Morrison is a physical education teacher at the Chickasaw School of Mathematics and Science.      

A Mobile County Schools spokesperson said she has been put on paid administrative leave.
