UPDATE: Crimetracker: Teacher arrested for DUI while heading to court

Jacksboro (WVLT) -- The Campbell County High School teacher who was charged with public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance in school on September 26, was arrested again.

According to the Campbell County Sheriff's Department, Angleen Broyles was charged with DUI 2nd Offense Friday, while on her way to the courthouse for a hearing on the September 26 charge.

The Campbell County High School teacher who was charged for public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance in school spoke exclusively to Channel 8 News Thursday.

Angleen Broyles was released from jail Thursday evening and told her side of the story of what happened.

Broyles admitted to having the prescription drug Xanex in her purse and not in a prescription bottle, but insisted she hadn't taken any pills in several days.

"They (students) said that my lips were purple and I don't know what it was. I just didn't feel good. I've been real tired," Broyles said.

Broyles has been a teacher for students with special needs at CCHS for 30 years. She also has two DUI arrests on her record, which she was quick to admit was a mistake from the past.

"I did the crime, the time, and paid the money. And not had a drink since."

Detective Josh Carroll with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office says Broyles failed her field sobriety test when he showed up at the school.

"I noticed she had slurred speech, very unsteady on her feet. I asked her if she would do some standardized field sobriety tests and she said she would. She performed very poorly," Carroll said.

Carroll said Broyles was under the influence of pills, not alcohol.
