Continuing the wave of posts related to education, let's talk about what NOT to do when you're a teacher... like texting a cop for weed.
I'm talking to you, B.C.-bud-smoking-hippie student teachers.
According to an AP story, a Kentucky middle school teacher trying to buy pot was arrested after she sent text messages to state trooper instead of a dealer.
Trooper Trevor Pervine, who initially thought the text was a joke from a friend, was at dinner with his wife and parents celebrating a birthday when his phone started buzzing with messages from a stranger, later identified as Ann Greenfield, about a marijuana purchase. He texted her back, set up a meeting place, and when Greenfiled showed up had an entire squad waiting for her.
Greenfield, 34, was charged with conspiracy to traffic in controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia; and she's suspended with pay pending results of an investigation by the school district.
Sadly, this was a sober text.
The money quote from Kentucky State Police spokesman Barry Meadows: "She learned her lesson. Program your dealers into your phone." Thanks for the advice, officer.
