A pre-school teacher seems to have taken her love for a tipple to a whole new level. Angelo Hircock, 34, from Des Moines, Iowa, who was convicted on child endangerment charges after she showed up to work drunk, managed to show up to her sentencing meeting drunk as well.

The teacher had been arrested on March 23, after coworkers told police that she was intoxicated at Lil Scholars Too Day Care Centre.

 

Hircock who pleaded guilty in July managed to appear for court sentencing on Thursday, drunk, again and blew the legal limit to drive in Iowa as well.

She was placed in jail, awaiting a pending substance abuse evaluation.

On the day of her arrest Hircock had bloodshot eyes and needed support to stand as well.

According to prosecutors, she had a blood alcohol content of .37 which is nearly five times the legal limit to drive.

Hircock admitted to drinking throughout the day and using the water bottle to conceal the alcohol.

Hircock made several statements to other staff members about her condition possibly being related to her diabetes, police said.

 

She was fired shortly after the incident.
