MENIFEE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A teacher was arrested Thursday for reportedly snorting drugs in class.

Students told officials they saw Cherish Rednour, 41, crush a pill with a credit card and make a line with the crushed pill. Then they watched her snort the pill, whereafter she slumped over the desk and had a hard time staying awake. 

Rednour was called to the office where she was confronted by the principal and sheriff''s department about the allegations.

She was subjected to several Field Sobriety Tests, and was arrested shortly after.

Sheriff's officials proceeded to check inside her classroom, where they found a white residue on her desk and a credit card with residue. 

When a deputy searched her at the sheriff's office, they found a tampon applicator in her bra that "resembled a very small, cut straw," according to the arrest citation. 

She is lodged in the Montgomery County Regional Jail on the following charges: public intoxication controlled substance (excludes alcohol), first-degree possession of controlled substance, and drug paraphernalia buy/possess?.
