Humble ISD Teacher Gets DWI On Her Way To School
Patricia Almond, a 48 year-old middle school teacher with Humble ISD was arrested for DWI while driving to work on May 8, 2014. According to authorities, Almond was seen driving erratically by police, swerving in and out of lanes on Highway 59. Police pulled the Humble ISD teacher over just after she grazed a retaining wall. When police began investigating Almond, they noticed several signs of alcohol intoxication such as having an odor of alcohol, difficulty maintaining balance and red, glassy eyes.
Since her arrest, Humble ISD has released a statement, saying, “The incident is being addressed through the court system, as it happened off campus, outside of school hours, and did not involve students. Human Resources will be reviewing the police report and then meeting with the staff member to discuss options“. Another teacher, Monica Quintero, in the Humble ISD was also arrested just a week before Almond when police caught her dealing drugs out of her apartment. Quintero, along with her felon boyfriend, were found to be in possession of various forms of meth, heroin, syringes and firearms among many other things.
