Tennessee Teacher Arrested For DUI And Drug Possession

Tennessee Teacher Braden Kessler Arrested For DUI And Drug Possession

Braden Kessler

Braden Kessler, a Tennessee teacher at Bolivar Central High School was arrested Monday October 22, 2012 for DUI and drug possession. Kessler was also charged with intent to distribute Xanax and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released from jail on a $25,000 bond. Kessler is set to appear before the Hardeman County General Sessions Court on October 30th at 9 a.m. and has been suspended without pay as a result of his arrest. Kessler is a first-year teacher and taught business technology.

Apparently, the district did conduct a background check prior to hiring Kessler. Hardeman County Director of Schools Warner Ross said, “Nothing came out of his background check.” Jeff Barnes, the Principal at Bolivar Central High School, said that the Tennessee teacher did not have any complaints on his record. However, the district does not require drug screenings during the hiring process and Kessler did not have a history of drug arrests. Kessler has not made a public statement and could not be reached but Ross did say that his future teaching at the high school would depend on the outcome of the case.
