FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - A middle school teacher accused of giving her student a taste of whiskey has been fired.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jessica Aljure of Port St. Lucie was arrested Thursday on charges of child abuse and giving alcohol to a minor.

The school superintendent says Aljure was a new teacher at Forest Grove Middle School.

Police say the teacher offered a 14-year-old student a ride home after the girl missed her bus. Aljure allegedly made a stop at a liquor store and allowed the student to have some of her whiskey.

Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers reports (https://bit.ly/UhQVEx ) the girl’s parents alerted police after she appeared drunk at home.

Aljure is free on bond. It’s not known if she has an attorney.
