Police say that a substitute teacher in a Pittsburgh-area high school passed out in class after allegedly being high on heroin.
Bellevue Police Sgt. Mike Hudson says 26-year-old Christopher Chiappetta of Pittsburgh was arrested Wednesday after he passed out in front of 11 students, TV station KDKA reports.
Authorities say they found four baggies of heroin in Chiapetta's pocket and marijuana in his car, and that he confessed to using heroin around 6 a.m. Wednesday.
Chiapetta faces several drug charges as well as endangering the welfare of children.
He's being held at the Allegheny County jail, unable to post $10,000 bond. No attorney was listed on court papers.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24.
