An Alabama substitute teacher was arrested in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., on Friday for hosting an alcohol-fueled spring break party with minors, according to CBS WKRG 5.
A bizarre sequence of events unfolded when police received a call about a naked female in the street. When law enforcement arrived on the scene, they noticed two intoxicated individuals leaving the home, one of whom was 28-year-old substitute teacher Walton Johnson.
Police say Johnson denied providing alcohol to the minors, but he did acknowledge that there were underage individuals inside the home drinking. Police conducted a search and found alcohol throughout the home and also found marijuana and pills.
Johnson was arrested and charged with 13 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and open house party. On top of that, 21 minors were arrested for possession of alcohol and 13 received notices to appear in court, WKRG reports.
A separate but interestingly related incident occurred the day before, where a chaperone from the same school district as Johnson was also arrested for hosting an open house party with minors. Police say that 42-year-old Misty Brooks was arrested after underage students, who were mostly young girls, were found with alcohol.
If that’s not enough of a twist, the boys who were arrested along with Johnson happened to be staying across the street from Brooks. Some of the boys had actually helped the girls escape a house fire a few days prior. The girls had relocated to another house with Brooks where they were arrested after throwing an open house party, according to police.
