GRANVILLE -- A kindergarten teacher in Washington County was charged this week with driving to school drunk, police said.

The incident happened just after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday at Mary J. Tanner Elementary School in Granville.

The school resource officer saw Kimberly Grover, 47, arrive by car. She then walked past the officer, who smelled alcohol, Officer Keith Seebode said.

The officer confronted her, and she eventually admitted she'd consumed alcohol. Tests showed her blood alcohol level to be 0.13 percent, Seebode said.

Grover was charged with one count of driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. She was processed and released.

She is listed on the school's website as a kindergarten teacher. District officials could not be reached for comment.
