WTF: Drunk teacher sues for job back

A Washington teacher who decided to get drunk during school hours is claiming he didn't do anything wrong, and believes he should be back on staff after being fired. The former physical education teacher is now suing the school for what he says is wrongful termination. In February, an assistant principal noticed the teacher's breath stunk of alcohol around noon. The administrator also observed he had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes.I was estimated he had a blood alcohol level of .15, nearly twice the legal driving limit of .08. He initially claimed he drank three glasses of beer the night before with dinner, then soon changed his story to say he had actually had nine, according to the report. Though he doesn't dispute working with students while drunk, Schock argued he shouldn't be fired because he did not engage in "flagrant misconduct" as defined by state law. More HERE
