A Lee High teacher is now under arrest and faces five counts of providing alcohol to underage persons. Those young people were students.
A Virginia State Police spokesperson told WCYB that they started investigating earlier this month when they heard a Lee High teacher was supplying students with alcohol.
VSP arrested Autumn W. Middleton, 31, of Pennington Gap without incident on Monday.
The spokesperson pointed out the incidents did not occur on school property.
The charges she faces are all misdemeanors, the investigation remains ongoing, and Middleton is currently out on bail.
