Teacher Charged With Using Heroin Tells Media "Roll Tide"

Alabama Crimson Tide fans have a multitude of ways to declare their love for their favorite team, and we document them on this site. Some of them are fantastic, others not so much, as in the case of our latest Tide fan having a brush with the law.

As reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 26-year old substitute teacher Christopher Chiappetta was charged with endangering the welfare of children, as well as drug possession, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct after it was reported that he was high on heroin in class.

Bellevue Sgt. Michael Hudson found Mr. Chiappetta, of Ross, asleep at his desk during an art class at Northgate Middle/High School on Oct. 17. Police said he had heroin on him and marijuana and blunt wrappers in his vehicle.

Fortunately for Chiappetta, the child endangerment charge was thrown out. Unfortunately for those of us who want to pretend only classy Tide fans exist, Chiappetta had only two words for the media:

“Roll Tide.”
