According to WMC, eighth grade teacher Tiffany Jackson was arrested for driving with a suspended license.

On Friday, students posted the mugshot to Instagram and several other students re-posted the picture.

School officials cited the policy “inappropriate use of electronic media” as the reason for the suspensions.

Parent Shanna Richardson said the suspensions seemed unfair given that the mugshot was public information.

Administrators later overturned the suspensions.
