HUMBLE, Texas — 05/17/2014– An Humble ISD teacher was arrested on suspicion of DWI while she was on her way to work Thursday, police said.
According to the Humble Police Department, Patricia Almond, a theatre and arts teacher, was on her way to Timberwood Middle School just before 8 a.m. when officers spotted her swerving and hit a retaining wall.

“Nice teacher, no complaints, uh, huh,” said one parent.
“I wouldn’t want that around my child” said another parent.

“That is very unfortunate; especially that she was on her way to school. The kiddos are young and impressionable,” said Beth Birge, a concerned parent. …MORE
