OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Oklahoma City high school teacher is charged with drug possession after police say methamphetamine was found in her purse at school.
Thirty-three-year-old Chrissea Jackson is charged with possession of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school. Court records do not list an attorney for her.
Police say a substance that proved to be meth was found by a paramedic called to Douglass High School on Oct. 25 where Jackson was on a classroom floor and incoherent.
Jackson was taken to the University of Oklahoma Medical Center for treatment and a hospital spokesman says she was released the following day.
School officials told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/sYJGNP ) that Jackson was hired in July as a science teacher -- but would not say if she has been placed on leave.
