If people like Chris Chiapetta are educating our nation’s youth, we are in serious trouble. Chiapetta, a 26-year-old who teaches (or used to) at Northgate Middle/High School in Pennsylvania, admitted to using heroin before teaching his class earlier this month. According to WXPI in Pittsburgh, he was “passed out on his desk” in front of the class.
On Thursday, Chiapetta had a preliminary hearing for the charges he is facing which include drug possession, public intoxication and disorderly conduct. When media members sought comment from Chiapetta as he was being escorted from the courtroom, he had only one thing to say.
Yup, Roll Tide. In addition to being high during class, a stamped bag reportedly fell out of Chiapetta’s pocket while he was sitting at his desk. Police later found four stamped bags of heroin in his car in addition to marijuana.
And you thought the guy who poisoned all those trees was crazy? This dude is on his own planet.
