The Butler County Sheriff's Department is investigating the report of a teacher who was caught and pictured drinking with a minor.

The incident occurred the weekend of Oct. 18 and 19.

"There is an investigation ongoing," Sheriff Craig Murphy said, but he declined to comment on it further at this time.

The school district is not able to take any action on the matter.

"The administration of USD 492 is aware of the issue, but the district is not able to deal with issues involving teaching behaviors outside of a school setting," said Russell Orton, Flinthills High School principal. "It is the district's understanding that the Butler County Sheriff's office has looked into the matter. I'm unavailable to comment beyond that."
