JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police arrested an after school art teacher after she was accused of showing up to school drunk.
Police were called to St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Thursday after witnesses at the school told them Deborah Anne Moffat, 60, arrived two hours late to work, disheveled and highly intoxicated, according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report.
Moffat drove over the curb as she left the school. Police then stopped her on her way home and they say she told them she had only drank one beer and had taken some allergy medication.
Moffat was charged with DUI and was released from the Duval County Jail on Friday.

UPDATE 4/15/13: First Coast News has learned that Moffat was not a faculty member of St. Joseph's, but a contractor through a company called Young Rembrandts program.

St. Joseph's requires background checks for all incoming contractors and Moffat was no exception, according to Joy Batteh-Freiha with the Diocese of St. Augustine's Communications office. Moffat had worked as an after school teacher for St. Josephs previously.

The Young Rembrandts program has been suspended for the remainder of the year and parents will receive a refund, Batteh-Freiha said.
