According to WHO-TV, Jennifer Rich was arrested Friday.

A parent helping out with a Valentine’s Day party spotted Ms. Rich with a beer can and quickly called the cops.

When officers arrived, they say Ms. Rich had bloodshot, watery eyes and failed a breathalyzer. They reportedly found the six-pack in her bag. Two cans were empty.

Ms. Rich is charged with public intoxication and child endangerment.

She now has more time to “pour it up, pour it up” after putting in her resignation Monday.
