MAYNARD, Iowa — Authorities have charged a 49-year-old man suspected of teaching while drunk at a high school in northeast Iowa.

Court records say Daniel Reisner, of Sumner, is charged with public intoxication. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Reisner. His next court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

An officer sent Monday to the West Central Community School District school in Maynard says Reisner smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot and watery eyes and failed field sobriety tests. The court records also say Reisner’s breath test at the Fayette County Jail showed his blood alcohol level was over the legal limit to drive.

The district superintendent says Reisner has been suspended.
