LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln high school math teacher has been charged Monday with driving drunk for a third time.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1RRyoZp ) that 41-year-old Terry Harms, of Cortland, was stopped by a city police officer around 2 a.m. Saturday.

The officer says Harms smelled of alcohol and that his blood alcohol level registered at .165 percent - more than twice the legal limit to drive in Nebraska.

Harms teaches at Lincoln North Star. He pleaded not guilty Monday to third-offense DUI and not having a valid registration.

Court records show Harms was convicted of drunken driving in 2007 and 2011.

School district officials say they are reviewing the case and that Harms has been asked not to return to work until a decision on his employment is reached.
