Heather Gibbs pleaded guilty Monday in Arab Municipal Court to public intoxication.

Gibbs, 44, was arrested in August while in the car line at Arab Primary School.

Arab Assistant Police Chief Shane Washburn said Gibbs, who formerly went by Heather Burgett, was in the student pick up line in front of Arab Primary School when she pulled up on a curb.

Children and teachers were in front of the school at the time.

“When she pulled up on the curb, the school resource officer stopped her,” Washburn said.

The officer smelled alcohol on her breath and coming from her vehicle.

“When other officers arrived, they had her undergo a field sobriety test, which they determined that she failed.”

Her breath alcohol content at the time of her arrest was 0.20 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
