A Floyd County teacher was arrested in Prestonsburg Friday evening on multiple drug related charges.
According to the Floyd county jail records, Michelle Hall, 37, a Special Education teacher at South Floyd Middle School, was arrested and charged with public intoxication of a controlled substance, first degree possession of a controlled substance, prescription drug not in its original container, possession of drug paraphernalia, and first degree promoting contraband.
According to Prestonsburg Police, Hall was arrested at the Prestonsburg Pizza Hut after she entered the business clearly under the influence. Police say that after Hall was transported to the Floyd County Detention Center, she was searched, and during that search, more pills were found.
Hall will likely be arraigned early this week in Floyd District Court. Times Staff will continue to update this story as new information becomes available.
