BULLITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – A Bullitt East High School teacher has been arrested under suspicion of DUI.

According to the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office, John Hunt was arrested on Saturday. Eric Farris, the Bullitt County Public School's attorney, said, "He is suspended without pay pending more information and further review of the matter."

Hunt is set to meet with school officials to present his side of the incident. That meeting will determine the length of his suspension.

The suspension is based upon "conduct unbecoming a teacher" as described in the teacher code of ethics.

Hunt was arrested in October following an arrest for assault and child endangerment charges.
