INDIANAPOLIS - A Warren Township elementary school teacher was arrested Sunday after police accused her of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Just after 9 a.m., Indianapolis Metro Police Department officers were called to the 3600 block of East 46th Street on reports of a crash possibly involving an intoxicated driver. During the investigation, police said the woman behind the wheel had a large amount of marijuana and an open container of an alcoholic beverage.
The driver, identified as Megan Brotherton, 32, of Indianapolis, agreed to take a blood draw.
She was then taken into custody on several charges including operating a vehicle while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance, and leaving the scene of a crash.
Police said another woman was injured in the crash, but they didn't say how it happened.
Brotherton teaches first grade at Pleasant Run Elementary School, according to the school's website. She has been suspended with pay.
