Drunken man poses as student, gets arrested

Posted: Updated:
A drunken Sunbright man posed as an Oak Ridge High School student in at least two classrooms last week before he was nabbed in a school hallway by police during a class change.

William Edward Lay, 25, somehow obtained a student's classroom schedule "and attempted to pass himself off as a student," according to arrest warrants.

Lay was unsteady on his feet and fell into the wall several times, warrants state.
