LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Catholic school teacher was arrested Friday at the Trinity-St. Xavier football game at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
William Sanford, 25, of Louisville told officers he taught at DeSales High School, according to an arrest report.
The Archdiocese of Louisville confirms that he has taught math at the school since 2011 and issued a statement saying: "This incident is a violation of the professional standards expected of Catholic school teachers, as well as safe environment guidelines regarding drinking at youth events. DeSales High School will conduct an investigation of the incident."
Witnesses flagged down police Friday night during the game, saying two people were starting fights in the stands.
When told to leave and being escorted out by police, according to an arrest report, Sanford took off walking quickly, trying to blend in with the crowd.
Sanford kept pulling away from an officer and was cursing loudly, police said.
When told he was under arrest, the officer said Sanford again pulled away and confronted the officer. Three officers then restrained him.
The arrest report states that Sanford smelled strongly of alcohol, had interrupted speech and was unsteady on his feet.
Sanford is charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, first-degree disorderly conduct and menacing.
