CLINTON, Wis. (AP) — Two Clinton High School teachers were taken into custody for allegedly attending a party at which underage drinkers apparently were present.
Rock County sheriff’ s deputies said the two women, arrested Friday, went to a rural cookout May 5 that was staged by former students from the school.
One woman told investigators she was given a beer and gave a beer to the other woman, although they brought no alcohol to the party.
They acknowledged they knew some of the people at the cookout were underage, and they left shortly after seeing what was going on.
School Superintendent Rebecca Nodorft alerted the sheriff’ s department after a student told administrators about the teachers’ presence at the party.
The district attorney’ s office did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press seeking information on possible charges in the incident.
The sheriff’s office said the two were arrested for allegedly violating a state law that says ” no adult may intentionally encourage or contribute to” an underage drinking violation.
