A middle school teacher has been placed on administrative leave after being charged with being drunk in her Loudoun County classroom.

Sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell says officials at Sterling Middle School called authorities to report that reading specialist Mary Ann Livoti of Hamilton appeared to be intoxicated in a classroom before 11 a.m. with students present.

Troxell says Livoti was arrested and placed in the county's adult detention center jail until she was deemed to be sober. Troxell says the county commonwealth's attorney planned to review the case to determine if more charges are warranted.
