HYRUM, Cache County — A substitute teacher in northern Utah has been arrested after school leaders said they spotted her outside of the school nursing a liquor bottle.

Erin Terry, 32, was arrested Tuesday for investigation of intoxication and open container violations, the Herald Journal of Logan reported. No charges have been filed against her.

Cache County Sheriff's Lt. Doyle Peck says Terry was spotted falling down Tuesday afternoon on the campus of South Cache 8-9 Center, a middle school in Hyrum. Authorities say she was very drunk and had been drinking all day.

Cache County School District spokesman Kirk McRae says Terry worked at the school that same day, though he doesn't know if she was drunk while teaching.

McRae says the district didn't receive any reports from students or parents about Terry.
