Oliver Springs High School Assistant Principal Donna Renee Moore was arrested on Saturday.
Oliver Springs police charged her with driving under the influence and violation of the implied consent law. Moore was booked at the Anderson County Jail.
According to the incident report, officer Shannon Runyan was dispatched to the skating rink on Tri-County Boulevard late Friday on a complaint that a parent who arrived to pick up their child was possibly intoxicated.
“Subject ... did appear to be intoxicated and was very unsteady on her feet, eyes red and glassy,” the report said, “and subject did have an odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from her person.”
The report said Moore was asked to perform field sobriety tests. On the walk and turn, she reportedly “used arms to balance, stepped off line, turned improperly and failed to count out loud.”
The officer also reported finding airline-sized vodka bottles in Moore’s purse — “one half empty and one three quarters empty.”
Police said Moore was asked to take a blood test after an intoximeter failed. She was taken to Methodist Medical Center and, once there, refused to allow blood to be drawn, the report said.
Roane County Director of Schools Gary Aytes said Moore wasn’t at work on Tuesday.
“We are still investigating,” he said. “We haven’t got enough information to make any decision on what we’re going to do there.”
Aytes spoke about letting the legal system run its course. That could take months.
Moore was arrested in Morgan County for domestic assault against her husband, Craig Moore, in January 2012.
The case was eventually dismissed in Morgan County General Sessions Court.
