Leslie A. McCurrry mug shotOver the years, cialis we’ve reported on any number of players and coaches who have been arrested at high school sporting events. Occasionally, we even have parents and fans who get in trouble with the law at games. But a teacher who’s not also a coach? How fired up would you need to be to get into a fight with police while supporting your team?

That’s a question for Leslie A. McCurrry, 36, a social studies teacher at John Hardin High School (KY) who was at a recent boys basketball game, sitting behind the bench when things started to get out of control. Here’s more on the story from WHAS:

The referee requested this person to be escorted from the gym. Officers made contact with the person, later identified as 36-year-old Leslie A. McCurrry of Elizabethtown. McCurry was asked to calm down by officers, who reported that she did not. When advised that she needed to leave the gym, it is reported that she refused. Officers state they gave McCurry these instructions multiple times and that she refused to follow them.

When an officer attempted to arrest McCurry, the officer reported she refused to comply with the officer’s demands. When the officer went to place handcuffs on her, reports indicate she refused to place her arms behind her back and kept pulling away.

McCurry was eventually handcuffed and then lodged at the Hardin County Detention Center on charges of criminal trespass, menacing, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
