Drunk Teacher Who Allegedly Flapped Arms And Made Chicken Noises Removed From Classroom
A Massachusetts middle school teacher was removed from her classroom last week when students reported that she appeared drunk, asking one pupil “how would it feel to have a bullet in his head” and “flapping her arms, and making chicken noises, and or trying to fly.”
Eva Brady, 47, was driven home by a colleague from Pentucket Regional Middle School after students in her eighth grade history class told administrators they “believed there was something wrong with their teacher.”
According to a West Newbury Police Department report excerpted here, an officer was called to the school and observed a 32-ounce Gatorade bottle that was “a little over a 1/4 to a 1/2 empty” and noted that the liquid “appeared to be lighter in color than most Gatorade products.” After smelling the contents police “determined that it had some sort of alcohol added to it” and a test of the liquid determined “alcohol present in the container.”
The educator, who has not been charged with any crime, has yet to return to the classroom.
