More Woes for Bronx Educators as Teacher Arrested for Giving Student Alcohol

A New York City teacher was arrested this week and charged with giving alcohol to a student.

The 26 year-old suspect was arrested by officers with the New York City Police Department at about 6:00 pm on Tuesday, on charges of endangering the welfare of a child. According to a report in the New York Daily News, the Bronx Academy High School teacher allegedly gave alcohol to a 16 year-old female student on at least two occasions.

The teacher was arrested in the Midtown South Precinct, and was off duty at the time. The arrest comes in the wake of the early May arrest of a Bronx assistant principal who is charged with having punched one of her teachers in the face. Apparently, the two women became engaged in a heated argument at Public School 49 in Mott Haven, when the assistant principal allegedly struck the teacher.
