An unnamed Southington High school teacher has been removed from teaching assignments after turning up drunk and peeing on himself during a lesson.
The male teacher who taught Spanish would come to be removed from the Connecticut school after inexplicably arriving Thursday morning drunk before urinating himself in front of shocked students.
Parents would come to be notified of the incident via a letter courtesy of Southington High School Principal Martin Semmel where the teacher’s actions came to be described as ‘inappropriate.’
Brief pause before we all get back on the vicious merry go round…
To date school authorities have declined to go into details of the incident, called it instead a ‘personal issue’ which was being dealt with by staff.
According to teens at the school, several students videotaped the incident where the teacher also allegedly pinned a student against the wall.
Students told local news stations that the behavior was out of the ordinary for the well-like teacher but that gossip nevertheless over the incident has spread like wild fire through the school.
Told Senior Justin Flanagan via WTNH: ‘I heard that a teacher, a Spanish teacher, came in drunk to school, and I guess he got in an altercation with a student.’
The teacher was not arrested nor was the incident reported to police.
Interestingly the school has declined to give further details on the teacher’s future at the school but said that they are investigating.
School principal Semmel’s letter as it appeared to parents:
