Logan • A substitute teacher in northern Utah has been arrested after school leaders spotted her outside of the school nursing a liquor bottle.

The Herald Journal of Logan reports that the 32-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of intoxication and open-container violations. She has not yet been charged.

Cache County Sheriff Lt. Doyle Peck says the woman was spotted falling down Tuesday on the campus of a middle school in Hyrum. Cache County School District spokesman Kirk McRae says the woman worked at the school that same day.
