California Teacher Charged With DUI And Drug Possession

berkeley highA California teacher at Berkeley High School was arrested on December 1, 2012 for DUI and possession of the LSD drug. Douglas Gray Haight, 51, was arrested after being pulled over on a routine traffic stop when he ran a red light in San Rafael. When police began to question the California teacher, they noticed that he displayed several symptoms of alcohol intoxication and conducted some preliminary alcohol tests. After submitting a breath test, police found that Haight had a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .13% and .12%, which exceeds the state’s legal limit of .08%.

Haight was arrested at the scene and after being taken into custody at the county jail, police found a bottle of breath mint that they suspected might contain drugs. When the breath mint liquid was tested, police found that tested positive for LSD, a hallucinogenic drug. Height was then released on bail and said that he had made “a mistake” when reached by telephone. Haight refused to make any further comments and Derek St. Pierre refused to comment as well. Mark Coplan, the spokesman for the school district declined to comment on the status of Haight’s position because it was a personal matter. Haight was hired at Berkeley High School this past August as a full time, temporary independent study teacher.
