    While students at a South Riding middle school hit the books, the Loudoun County Sheriff's office said a teacher was hitting the bottle.

    Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to J. Michael Lunsford Middle School on Monday at 2:45 p.m., after receiving a report of public drunkenness.

    A member of the school's staff had called in, believing a colleague was drunk at work.

    Authorities said that deputies discovered a physics teacher, Radhakrishnan Sivaramapillai, under the influence of alcohol.  He was arrested for public intoxication.

    Law enforcement told News4 the teacher was so drunk he could not legally operate a vehicle.

    Sivaramapillai has resigned from Loudoun County Public Schools, News4's Elaine Reyes reported.
