A teenager recently admitted to driving while impaired after her vehicle crashed into a North Carolina home. The 17-year-old says she skipped her classes at Gaston College and spent time drinking with her friends at a residence close to the school. She and a 19-year-old friend were on their way back to school when the car veered off Puetts Chapel Road, apparently going about 75 miles per hour.
Police in Gaston County are claiming that a high school teacher gave prescription anti-anxiety pills to a student. As the pills are a controlled substance, the teacher is now facing multiple drug charges. However, she has no prior criminal record in North Carolina.
