(Newport) -- State police plan to charge a midstate high school teacher who was found to be drunk and possessing booze in class.

Newport School District Superintendent Ryan Neuhard says state police were asked to investigate after "the teacher appeared to be intoxicated and was in possession of alcohol." 

Police say the teacher was removed by school administrators Tuesday afternoon, and that students were taken to an unspecified "safe location."

State police say in a news release they planned to charge the teacher with endangering the welfare of children.

The Associated Press was not identifying the teacher because the charges had yet to be filed this morning.
