LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Riverside County prosecutors are deciding whether to file criminal child endangerment charges against an elementary school teacher who was reportedly drunk in the classroom.
The Los Angeles Times says Sheriff's Department deputies were called to Susan La Vorgna Elementary School Thursday.
According to authorities, school officials became suspicious over a hall pass the teacher wrote out that day. The teacher was removed from her third-grade classroom on suspicion of being intoxicated.
The teacher's name was not released.
The newspaper says she was released to a family member.
