High School Teacher Nabbed for Ohio DUI

A teacher at Lorain High School in northern Ohio was arrested for drunk driving and cocaine possession. Around 2:15 am on November 5, police attempted to pull over Dominic Fracchione for speeding and crossing the center line. With the patrol officer behind him, Fracchione sped up and eventually pulled into an alley behind his home. He failed a field sobriety test and a breath test registered a blood alcohol content of .211% – a reading more than two and a half times the legal limit. The arresting officer found an open bottle of whiskey in the vehicle.

Fracchione, 36, told the officer that he had to be at school in the morning because the “students looked up to him”. He also said he could not afford another OH DUI/OVI arrest. His driving record shows he has been convicted of driving under the influence in Ohio in 1997, 2003 and 2006.

While being booked at the Lorain City Jail, officers found two bags of cocaine weighing 1.2 grams in Fracchione’s pockets. In addition to the drunk driving offense and moving violations, Fracchione was charged with drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and conveyance of drugs into a detention facility.

The Lorain school district reports Fracchione is on unpaid suspension until the criminal charges are resolved. If convicted, he would face termination.
