Preusser and the female student failed on-site breathalyzer tests and, according to officials, all three provided conflicting stories about how they got there.
More to the point, the students’ parents later told state police they had no idea their kids were with Preusser at the time.
Now, she is facing five misdemeanor counts of providing alcohol to minors. She has reportedly been suspended from her teaching post, but officials at the Ridley School District have not made themselves available for comment.MORE NEWS: Police Searching For Michael Siciliano, Accused Of Posing As Financial Advisor To Steal From Elderly Victims
