Kentucky special education teacher, Lindsey Lewis arrested after hosting new years eve party where 14 minors were smoking weed and drinking alcohol.
Lindsey Lewis, 36, was booked early Tuesday morning and charged with 14 counts of engaging in a unlawful transaction with a minor.
Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Renee Murphy said Lewis has taught at Phoenix School of Discovery in Lyndon since 2016.
According to an arrest report cited by WDRB, police officers were dispatched to Lewis’ home in Mount Washington just before 1am after neighbors called complaining about ‘teenagers at a party next door’ who ‘tore up’ their property pulling in and out of the driveway.
Police said Lewis, who has two daughters of her own, told officers she was the adult in charge. At least 40 people were inside the residence, of whom 14 were minors.
Lewis’ house is set back several hundred feet from the road, but police said they could hear loud music and yelling coming from the property.
Responding officers upon approaching the property told of smelling marijuana along with spotting several cans and bottles of alcoholic beverages scattered around the house.
Multiple underage guests admitted to drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana at the end-of-the-year celebration.
Police said Lewis ‘knowingly hosted a party’ where children younger than 18 were exposed to alcohol and pot.
Following their investigations, police determined Lewis knowingly allowed the minors to drink and smoke at the party.
School district spokesperson Renee Murphy has since announced that Lewis will be reassigned. Indeed.
