BREWTON, Alabama — A fourth-grade teacher at Brewton Elementary with 19 years of service was arrested late Thursday in an undercover drug sting, according to police.

Brewton Police Chief Monte McGougin said Kelly Ball, 46, was released on $5,000 bail early Friday, charged with possession of a controlled substance.

McGougin said investigators began hearing Ball's name from street sources months ago, and began surveillance of the woman's residence.

McGougin said an undercover agent called the Ball's home on Thursday offering 30 Xanax pills. McGougin said Ball agreed to the exchange and met the agent in an alley near her home late Thursday afternoon.

"We had the agent's car wired for sound and video, and captured good images of the drugs and the money in the buy," McGougin said. "She paid $100."

Online medication sites describe Xanax as a prescription medication generically known as alprazolam, used to treat anxiety and panic disorder.

Brewton City Schools Superintendent Lynn Smith said he had not spoken with Ball, but was notified of her arrest by police. He said no decision has been made on her employment status.

Police said Ball faces a municipal charge of resisting arrest, in addition to the drug possession charge.

"It is a sad situation," McGougin said, "but she should have been more professional and thought more about the example she sets for students, about her responsibility to parents and their children."




The last 2 lines really upset me. The kids knew nothing of her drug use UNTIL the police decide to setup a sting and arrest her. Terrible...This is Alabama for you.

Wait, they sold the drugs to her? Wouldn't that be entrapment?

Seems so, but they probably just used something along the lines of "She was endangering the kids"...But nowhere in the article does it say she was a bad parent blah blah blah...Some snitch probably ratted her out to get out of trouble.

Not to mention it happened in Alabama which has the most fucked up laws regarding this type of thing.

That's really sad. A 19 year teaching career down the drain, all because some pig wanted to look good. :frown:

Fixed. I don't hear meany people call it Alprazolam on the street and since Alprazolam is the actual drug name then that should go first. Sorry for nitpicking. This teacher did nothing more than buy a schedule 3 substance, I don't know how this makes the news.

My bad, I'm not sure if the generic is just Alprazolam though, doesn't it still have a name?

edit- I found this list of brand names from Wiki that says, "Alprazolam is available in English-speaking countries under the following brand names-".

Alganax
Alzolam
Alprax
Alprox
Alzam
Anxirid
Apo-Alpraz
Alzolam
Azor
Calmax
Gerax
Helex
Kalma
Nervin
Niravam
Novo-Alprazol
Nu-Alpraz
Tafil
Texidep
Xanax
Xanor
Zopax

No, that's it.

Xanax = Alprazolam
Klonopin = Clanazepam
Valium = Diazepam
Ativan = Lorazepam

Those are a few of the benzos. Generic is the chemical name or whatever. There are several companies who make generics but its still called alprazolam they will just look different.

Kind of like buying generic tylenol...You have like walmart brands, cvs brands, blah blah blah but they are still called acetaminophen or whatever it is...They just look different and have their little name on it.

Okay, cool, thank you. Always happy to to be corrected when I'm misinformed. I know the chemical names of a bunch of benzos, I just never knew about the generic because I never got a script of anything but brand name Valiuum and Tranxene which is Clorazepate, and the only bottles of friends I've seen have been brand name, mmmmm Klonopin, Yum!
