GARNER, Iowa – A school teacher arrested for drunk driving is pleading not guilty.
Raylea Lynn Hepker, 27 of Britt, was charged with OWI-3rd offense after being arrested on January 28. Britt police say she was pulled over after a complaint of a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road. Officers say there was a strong smell of alcohol coming from Hepker’s vehicle.
Court documents say a breath test found a blood alcohol content of .267, more than three times the legal limit.
Hepker, who is still listed as a teacher on the West Hancock Community Schools website, is scheduled to stand trial starting on May 1.
