A special education teacher at Warren Township High School in Gurnee was caught smoking marijuana under the bleachers at a wrestling meet at Antioch High School on Saturday, police said.
Peter Mulloy, 50, of the 21900 block of Michelle Lane in Antioch, was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, court records show.
An off-duty police officer who happened to be at the wrestling event reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana while seated in the bleachers, records show. The officer confronted Mulloy before calling Antioch police, officials said.
A representative from Warren could not be immediately reached for comment, but Mulloy is listed on the school’s website as a special education teacher.
Mulloy is due in court on March 20 to be arraigned on the charges.
