A high school teacher pointed a gun at his wife after he showed up drunk to his daughter’s track and field game and was not invited to dinner at Olive Garden, Florida police said.

The man, who is listed as a social studies teacher at a Pensacola high school, went to his daughter’s track drunk on May 4, according to an arrest report from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

His wife, angry that he was drunk at a prom, told him she would not allow him to join the family for dinner at an Olive Garden, the report said.

Later, the teacher showed up at the restaurant “combatant and drunk,” the report says.

That night, his wife and their two children were all sleeping in the same room at their home when the woman awoke to find her husband pointing a gun at her, according to the report.

She later told deputies that a neighbor took possession of her husband’s guns the next day, the report said.

An arrest warrant was issued for the man on May 9, according to the report.

According to the sheriff, he is charged with aggravated assault with a weapon. He was not issued bail and ordered not to have any contact with the victim, the report said. He did not appear in a search for prisoners in Escambia County.

A spokesman for the Escambia County Public School District said in a statement that the teacher had been suspended.

“(Escambia County Public Schools) will continue to work with our local law enforcement partners,” the statement said.

Pensacola is about 200 miles west of Tallahassee.
