MIDLAND - A Midland High physics teacher, who went to class drunk, is no longer teaching anymore.

Midland ISD tells NewsWest 9, John Jeffries has resigned but didn't say why.

Back in November, Jeffries showed up to his 6th period physics class, smelling of booze, acting crazy and using profanities during his lecture.

Midland ISD Police met up with Jeffries and conducted a field sobriety test which said that he was drunk.

He was arrested on campus.

When the semester started in January, instead of going back to his normal teaching schedule, he taught a modified schedule.
