A Vonore teacher is accused of driving drunk and almost running other drivers off the road.

“It was an off duty Monroe County Sheriff’s deputy who actually called it in. He had followed a vehicle that had run several other vehicles off the road or had almost run them off the road,” said Chief Gregg Breeden, Madisonville Police Department.

Madisonville police arrested Kelly Jenkins Robinson Friday and charged her with DUI. Officers said her blood alcohol content was .299.

“Field sobriety tests were done on scene and subsequently she was arrested for driving under the influence,” Chief Breeden said.

Robinson is listed as a media specialist and technology instructor on Vonore Middle School’s website.

Director of Schools, Tim Blankenship, said the school board is “aware of this situation with Ms. Robinson and are in the process of gathering the facts surrounding the incident.”

She is the second Vonore teacher arrested in less than a month.
