Scranton School District Teacher Arrested For DUI

lynn kingLynn M. King, a teacher with the Scranton School District, was arrested for DUI and child endangerment on July 12, 2013 in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania. The incident occurred around 11 p.m. when State Trooper Mark Prushinski saw King drifting out of her lane at least 3 times. According to Prushinski, King initially refused to stop and continued driving for almost a mile before coming to a stop. When the trooper approached King, he detected symptoms of alcohol intoxication like slurred speech, glassy eyes and an odor of alcohol on her breath.

Lynn King was formerly charged with DUI several days later when State Troopers received her official blood alcohol content (BAC) level result, which was .165%, more than double the states legal limit. Kings two daughters ages 8 and 7 were in the backseat at the time of the incident which resulted in her being charged with child endangerment as well. According to the police report, King initially refused to submit a breathalyzer test because she was “concerned with the fact that she wasn’t far from home and wanted to go home“. The Scranton School District teacher was arrested and taken into custody at the county DUI processing center where she was later released to her family. While Mrs. King’s husband is the Superintendent with the Scranton School District, board members said they have not been briefed on her charges and it is still unclear if Mrs. King is employed with the district.
