Alabama Teacher Facing Meth Charges

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say a south Alabama teacher will likely lose his job following his arrest on methamphetamine and alcohol charges.
Houston County sheriff's deputies say 32-year-old Jason Allen Andrews was arrested on drug charges after being pulled over during a traffic stop. He's also charged with possession of moonshine.
The Dothan Eagle reports that Andrews is a science teacher at Ashford High School in southeast Alabama. But Houston County Superintendent Tim Pitchford says Andrews is now on leave and likely won't have his contract renewed after a review on Friday.
Pitchford also says a county background check didn't detect Andrews' past arrest on theft charges in 2005 because that case was dismissed.
Court records don't show whether Andrews has hired an attorney.
