A Boyle County teacher and assistant football coach who was arrested over the weekend on a DUI charge will not face any immediate disciplinary action from the school system.
Chris Mason, 34, of Perryville, was arrested early Sunday morning on Upper Salt River Road after Boyle County Deputy Al Isaacs responded to a call about a truck that had "slipped off a driveway and got lodged against a tree," Sheriff LeeRoy Hardin said.
Mason was given a blood test at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center and lodged in the Boyle County Detention Center, before being released later that morning, Hardin said. It could be a month before results of the blood test are known.
Paul Elwyn, spokesman for Boyle County Schools, said today that Mason, a social studies teacher at Boyle County High School, returned to work Monday and that the school system has no plans at this time take any disciplinary action.
