An Oklahoma teacher came to school on her first day of work drunk and missing her pants and shoes, police said.

49-year-old Lorie Ann Hill was placed under arrest by Wagoner Police Department officers after she was found in an empty classroom by a school assistant principal.

“He found her with no pants on,” said Bob Haley, police chief at the Wagoner Police Department.

Officers who arrived on the scene said that they could smell “a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming for her breath,” according to a police report obtained by ABC News.

“She admitted drinking before entering the building,” Haley said.

Hill was recently hired by the school district and she admitted to police that she was drinking orange juice and vodka on her way to her job.

The police report adds that she failed all field sobriety tests administered to her at the school.

When the police officer asked her if she had any more vodka left, she said there was more stocked up in her car, which was parked in the school parking lot.

Police arrested Hill on a charge of public intoxication.

The police chief noted that there isn’t a credible witness that can prove Hill drove to school under the influence of alcohol.

Hill was arraigned on Tuesday and a judge set bail at $149. After pleading not guilty, she was released from jail Tuesday night.

Wagoner High School officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
