• CMS teacher arrested for DWI after single-car crash


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teacher was arrested last month after a single-car accident.

    Court records show that George Daniels' blood-alcohol content was .40 percent, five times the legal limit.

    He was released from jail on a $1,000 bond.

    CMS officials told Channel 9 that Daniels was hired as a Spanish teacher for South Mecklenburg High School in August 2013. The district said Daniels was suspended with pay on March 16. However, the district would not give a reason for the suspension, citing state personnel laws.

    Eyewitness News has contacted Daniels for comment but has not heard back.
