Posted on 1/13/2014 4:44:00 PM.
An Ascension Christian High School teacher was arrested yesterday after school officials being sent home early for being drunk. Gonzales police say Jamie Ingrassia was involved in a hit and run accident and resulted in her second offense DWI. Sgt. Steven Nethken says once police caught Ingrassia they gave her a breathalyzer test which determined her blood alcohol content was .285.
 
"As officers were speaking to her, they determined that she was showing signs of impairment. She was brought into the police department under investigation of the hit and run accident," Nethken says.

Ingrassia recently received another DWI in Saint James Parish. Nethken says Ingrassia was on her way home from work when she was involved with the accident. 
 
"It's not something we see everyday, especially this early in the morning for someone to be driving around with this impairment level," Nethken says.
 
Ingrassia was arrested on the charges of careless operation, hit and run and DWI. Nethken says they have no reason to believe any other substance besides alcohol was involved. 
 
"From the tests that we have been able to administer at this point, we do believe it was alcohol impairment," Nethken says.
