Barnes, 50, was a substitute assistant teacher in a special education program at Stone Hill Middle School.

School officials suspected something was amiss as she arrived at the school and administered a breath analysis test in administrative offices. Byard said cases similar to Barnes' usually resulted in dismissal.
