FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -- A substitute teacher at a northern Virginia school has been charged with being drunk in public after police say students found him passed out at a desk.
Local media reported Friday that 24-year-old Konbeh Koroma of Springfield was filling in for an art teacher who taught grades 10-12 at a Fairfax County public school.
Fairfax County police say students noticed Koroma unresponsive and tried to wake him up. Police say a school resource officer responded and determined Koroma was under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested and taken to an adult detention center.
A Fairfax County schools spokesman tells WTOP Koroma has been dismissed from his position.
A phone number listed for Koroma was disconnected. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
