WAGONER, Okla. — It is a nightmare many people said they’ve had over the course of their lifetime, showing up to school naked. For a new teacher in Wagoner, Oklahoma, the nightmare turned into reality.

Lorie Ann Hill, 49, was arrested Monday when she showed up to school drunk and without pants, according to Hill, a new hire for the school system, admitted to school officials she was drinking vodka before work.

Hill was setting up the wrong classroom Monday morning when a fellow teacher arrived and discovered her in less than ideal working conditions.

“She was found in a room kind of disoriented,” Police Chief Bob Haley told “By the time we got there she was in a room and wearing shorts.”

The school year in Wagoner starts on Thursday.
