Patricia Ann Mazurkiewicz, 59, had been contracted through Professional Educational Services Group (PESG) to fill in for a social studies teacher at the Farmington Hills school, according to multiple media reports. Students alerted school officials that she was "behaving erratically", WXYZ-TV reported.
Mazurkiewicz told WDIV-TV that she made "an error in judgment". Misdemeanor charges included possession of alcohol on school grounds and disorderly conduct.
Among other consequences, District Court Judge Jim Brady sentenced Mazurkiewicz to a year's probation and community service.
