Ariz. --- (KPNX)  An Arizona high school teacher was cited Wednesday after she showed up to school intoxicated.

Kathleen Jardine, a 57-year-old math teacher, blew a 0.205 on a breathalyzer test after officials arrived at the school, according to Sgt. Pat Ramirez, a Pinal County Sheriff's Office spokesman.

Jardine initially denied having drunk alcohol, but she later admitted she had been drinking Tuesday night, Wednesday morning and Wednesday during her lunch break, according to Ramirez.
