RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)–A Richmond Public School teacher was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and drunkenness over the weekend.

Police said 23-year-old Diamond Mays, a third grade teacher at Broad Rock Elementary school, was arrested around 9 p.m. Saturday.

The arrest took place in the 1400 block of East Cary Street near Sine Irish pub. There were multiple St. Patrick’s holiday celebrations in the area.

A Richmond Public Schools spokesperson said the district is aware of the charges and will follow the case until there is a final disposition to appropriate actions.

They said they won’t comment further, because the situation is a personnel issue.

        ” Hashtag Dont believe nothing you hear and half the things you see,,,,” Shall we start with an engilsh translation? Or would you prefer the “powerful” note? Perhaps you could clarify the “get ya facts first”, You have facts not on the news? Do tell.

      Oh h**l no! I she’s convicted of disorderly, don’t deport. Some people need to stay in Jones richmond pergatory for all eternity. The headline only mentions the DIP charge,

      I suspect some comments here are from those that did not read the story and didn’t pick up on the disorderly. Or maybe there were too many words at all for them to try.

        The media only tells what they would like…yes she was entoxicated such as the other thousands of people in the area! Let it have been a caucasion female entoxicated this would have never been in the media… the media didnt mention that she was back slapped by the police though! The media only tells what they want people to know…
