PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police say that a substitute teacher in a Pittsburgh-area high school passed out in class after allegedly being high on heroin.


Bellevue Police Sgt. Mike Hudson says 26-year-old Christopher Chiappetta of Pittsburgh was arrested Wednesday after he passed out in front of 11 students, TV station KDKA (http://cbsloc.al/1aPySHp0 ) reports.


Authorities say they found four baggies of heroin in Chiapetta’s pocket and marijuana in his car, and that he confessed to using heroin around 6 a.m. Wednesday.


Chiapetta faces several drug charges as well as endangering the welfare of children.


He’s being held at the Allegheny County jail, unable to post $10,000 bond. No attorney was listed on court papers.


A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24.
