LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Authorities say a Fairview Elementary
School teacher resigned and was arrested after bringing illegal
prescription drugs to school.
The American Press reports 38-year-old Kelly McMichael Fontenot
of Ragley was booked with two counts of possession of a Schedule IV
drug, one count of possession of Schedule III drug, having drugs
near a school, and obtaining a Legend drug by fraud.
Calcasieu Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Fontenot
had several hydrocodone and Soma pill bottles in her purse Friday
but had no prescriptions for the drugs.
Myers said deputies found more prescription pills in a container
under her classroom desk.
