Cherish Rednour, 41, was charged Thursday with public intoxication, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia for the alleged incident at Menifee Elementary School, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

Rednour was arrested after two students reported seeing her crush a pill with a credit card and make a line with the substance in her classroom.

The two kids then witnessed her snort the pill and slump over her desk, police said.

Students told authorities it “appeared that it was hard for her to stay awake,” according to an arrest report.

Officers called to the Frenchburg school performed field sobriety tests on Rednour and noted that her pupils were dilated.

Investigators also found a white residue on her desk and a tampon applicator in her bra that “resembled a very small, cut straw,” according to police.

She was arrested and booked into Montgomery County Jail, where she remains in custody.

School officials said Rednour was placed on leave pending investigation, news station WKYT reported.
