East TN teacher arrested at school on drug charges

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police say a Campbell County high school teacher was arrested at her school on drug and intoxication charges.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that Angleen Broyles of LaFollette was arrested Thursday and charged with public intoxication and possession of Xanax without proof of a prescription. She was later released from jail.

Police were notified about Broyles after several students complained of the 55-year-old being intoxicated in her classroom.

Broyles initially told police she didn't have any medication on her but later acknowledged having 12 loose Xanax pills in her purse without a prescription.

Records show Broyles was arrested for drunken driving in 2003 and 2004, and a charge of driving on a revoked license in 2007 in Campbell County.
