BEXAR COUNTY, Texas -- An elementary school teacher was arrested and accused of driving while intoxicated early Wednesday morning.
Veronica Aguero, 34, was also arrested for marijuana possession and felony possession of a controlled substance, according to an arrest warrant.
A warrant states a San Antonio Police Department officer stopped Aguero around 2:15 a.m. while she was driving 75 mph in a 60 mph zone on northbound I-37 near the Brooklyn exit ramp.
Her vehicle was also veering from its lane and struck a construction barrel with workers present nearby, according to the warrant. Police said her vehicle struck a cement wall, and an officer could reportedly smell alcohol on her.
Aguero told police she was not aware that she hit a barrel in the road. She also stated she had been drinking at a friend's house "because she had a bad day."
Her blood was drawn after she refused to give breath or blood samples at the time of her arrest, according to the warrant.
Aguero also has a previous DWI conviction, according to court documents.
She was listed as a fourth-grade teacher at Morrill Elementary School in Harlandale ISD Wednesday.
In a statement from Harlandale ISD, they said:
“Today the District received a report of possible inappropriate conduct by a District employee. As required by law, the District reported the information to the appropriate state education agencies.
